Sgt Stephen Dennis died in Sheffield Military Hospital on 18th November 1915.

I would dearly love to find out how he became injured in France leading to his death.

He is buried at Longton, Stoke on Trent, where he lived all his life.

Any help would be very gratefully received

Unable to locate in Medals Roll or Medal Index Cards, and serving with 3rd Reserve Battalion South Staffordshire  which remained in the UK, would suggest no  service in France.

Do you have his death certificate, this might help, if not you can easily order one from the GRO a pdf one costs £7.

I ordered one last week and took about 4 days.

Hope this helps.

Sgt Dennis died of Malignant disease of the stomach 

(source Western Front pension documents)

 

As Edwards has stated above, The absence of a medal entitlement indicates Home Service Only

Ray beat me to it!

As his main pension card is rather full of info I post an image rather than trying to transcribe it.

The "Noted for Novel" stamp means it required special treatment/calculation - probably not least because of the number of children and the age of his widow [who would have got an age-related pension supplement]

The youngest child has an interesting name - very in tune with supporting the French I would think.
