i did get original info from adam lewellyn as i used to live in anstey, leicester and he checked for me at a event celebrating ww1.


ive since moved and lost photo, it would have been printed in the leicester mercury probably showing the war dead.

my 10 year old son is really interested and is covering ww1 in school and he has the same name as well William.


many thanks for any info.

Nothing in the newspaper archives, that I can see, bar the notice of his death in a weekly casualty list in the Birmingham Gazette dated 19 October 1915.

Hi Louise,


Welcome to the forum.


I think that @Adam Llewellyn is a member of the forum, though it looks like he hasn't been on the site since February. Hopefully he might visit soon, and advise about the photo.
