    Findmypast has his service record. He attested on 11th September 1915 and, after service in France, died of wounds at Rouen 7th October 1916. Born approximately June 1882.

    There are also records of his medal entitlement, listing on the Soldiers Died In The Great War Register and CWGC grave at St Sever Cemetery in Rouen.
