William was born in the parish of St Mary's C of E Church, Stockport. Other than that and the fact that he enlisted in the army in the town, nothing is known of his personal life. His service number is a very early one, suggesting that he enlisted within days of the Battalion being formed in mid-August 1914. He was killed at the Battle of the Lys.
