WILLIAM RICHARD LUMM
Remembered with honour Pozieres Memorial: Panel 46 and 47.
He enlisted in Watford; was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was killed in action. Unfortunately, William’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
Son of the late Robert and Caroline (nee FISHER) LUMM; husband of Florence Amelia (nee WOODHOUSE) LUMM.
His parents married 15 February 1857 at St James’, Bushey, Herts. Robert died 1896 in the Watford district aged 61, and was buried 24 August at St James’, Bushey; Caroline died 1898 in the Watford district aged 63 and was buried 1 December, also at St James’.
William was born 14 August 1863 in Bushey, and baptised 22 May 1864 at St James’, Bushey. He married 1896 in the Watford district; they had three children.
On the 1871 Census, aged 7 he lived in Bushey, with his parents and four siblings. On the 1881 Census, a general labourer aged 18, he still lived in Bushey, with his parents and five siblings. On the 1891 Census, a labourer aged 26, he still lived in Bushey, with his parents and five siblings. On the 1901 Census, a bricklayer’s labourer aged 36, he lived in Watford, with his wife and three children. On the 1911 Census, he is proving elusive.
