Nothing has been established about Willaim Watson's life, other than military records indicate he was born in the parish of St Paul's C of E Church, Portwood, Stockport. He also enlisted in the town and his service number confirms this was during August 1914.

Regimental records show that he died of wounds received in combat. Amara was the major hospital centre for troops in Mesopotamia (modern day Iraq) but it is not known how long William had been in hospital when he died.
