Nothing is known of William's life except that army records published after the War indicate he was born in Stockport and enlisted into the army in the town.

When he joined up, he was assigned to the Monmouthshire Regiment (service number 4585) and went on active service with the Regiment. His later service number suggests he was transferred to the Borderers, probably in 1916. He died in a military hospital near Boulogne, from wounds he'd received in action. It is not known when he was injured.
