The family history website, FreeBMD, suggests that Ernest was born between January and March 1894. Regimental records indicate he was born in the Edgeley area of Stockport. His family lived at 94 Brinksway, but no further details of his life are known. He enlisted at Stockport, his number suggesting this was probably around the late autumn of 1914.
