Rank: Sapper
Number: 6532
Unit: Royal Anglesey Royal Engineers
Date of Death:

The name of H Walley is recorded on the Stockport War Memorial, at the Art Gallery. It is amongst those names submitted for inclusion after 1925. It is not possible to be absolutely sure of his identity but he is thought to have been the above man who had joined the Royal Anglesey – a Territorial unit of the Engineers – in March 1914.

This man had been born in the Heaton Norris area and was then aged 18 and earning his living as a general labourer. His parents were Richard and Jane and the family home was at 67 Church Hall Street, where he lived with his brother and sister. His enlistment papers show him to have been 5’ 8” tall with hazel eyes and light brown hair. Harold had given his religious denomination as Church of England. Harold had been pronounced fit for duty but he had, almost certainly, failed to disclose that he was an epileptic. He had a couple of seizures whilst in training and it was these that led to his quick discharge.

It has not been possible to establish when Harold died.
