William was wounded in action, although there is no information as to when this happened. He would have received treatment at a field hospital in France and must have returned to the UK before he died (the bodies of soldiers who died overseas were not repatriated).

He was the son of Harry Andrew Morley and Sarah Jane Morley. Sarah had died in 1911, aged 62 and Henry died, also in 1918, aged 71.

William had married Ellen Lowe in a civil ceremony at Stockport in 1903. They are believed to have had a son who they named Henry Andrew and who died, aged 14, in 1919. Ellen is believed to have died in 1923, aged 48.
