WILLIAM/WILLIE THOMAS HOLT WELLS
Remembered with honour White City Cemetery: Row B, Grave 10.
He enlisted in Fitzroy Square, London; was entitled to the Victory, British War and 1914-15 Star medals, his qualifying date being 11 March 1915, 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 Eve/Eva (nee HOLT) of Watford, and the late William WELLS.
His parents married 17 February 1887 at St Mary’s, Watford. William died either 1908 in the Hemel Hempstead, Herts, district aged 46 or 1910 in the St Alban’s, Herts, district aged 47; Eva died 1937 in Watford aged 72, and was buried 24 March in Vicarage Road Cemetery, Watford.
William was born 3 October 1894 (or 1893) in Watford, and baptised 15 July 1898 at St John the Evangelist, Watford. He attended Beechen Grove Board School, Watford, from 21 April 1902 to 9 November 1906, and resided in Kentish Town, London.
On the 1901 Census, aged 7 he lived in Watford, with his parents and five siblings. On the 1911 Census, he is proving elusive.
