Hi 

I’m looking for any information about Capt Wilfred Wood who served with 118th Siege Battery

 A bit more info could help Stuart...date and place of birth...places of residence, family etc.

He was born Oct 1891 in Swinton, Manchester.

there is a plaque in the holy trinity church graveyard at Edale dedicated to him and he died March 1919. He suffered a gas attack but was struck down by the big flu epidemic in that year.

He got married in 1915 at Worsley church Manchester

At the time of his death he lived at 1 Orange Hill Road, Heaton Park.

His father was a publican...I can't find which pub yet.

There appears to be an obituary in The Guardian on Newspapers.com.
