William TOOLE

Date of Death: 3 July 1916
Age: 20
Cemetery: Thiepval Memorial, Somme, France

William had been born within the parish of St Philip & St James Church, Edgeley, Stockport. The family home was at 40 Tollbar Street (off Hillgate) where William lived with his parents, sisters and brother, Jim.

Before he enlisted September 1914, William worked at Carrington Mill. He was killed in the fighting described here. This would not be the end of the grieving for the Toole family. Just over two years later, and only a couple of weeks before the end of the war, they received news that Jim had died of pneumonia whilst serving with the Royal Navy.
