red mail William Ward, son of Thomas & Alice of B'ham
I am seeking information re. WILLIAM WARD of Birmingham. The birth certificate for William Ward shows him to be the son of Thomas Ward & Alice Ward (nee Smith) born 4th December 1894 ~ the family lived at 14 Liverpool Street, Deritend in the Aston parish of Birmingham. I have found his baptism record ~ William was baptised at St Basil's Church on 15th April 1896 but this entry shows his birth date incorrectly as 23rd November 1894. William had siblings named Selina, Albert, John, Lily, Thomas & Nellie. He was a brass bedstead worker (as were many other of the Ward family) until he enlisted with the Royal Welsh Fusiliers & served in WWI at the Somme where he was gassed rendering him unfit for further service & was discharged from the army on 2/8/1917. The home address quoted on his war records at the time of his discharge was 64 Herbert Road, Small Heath which was the then home of his father Thomas Ward. I have been unable to discover any further information about William & would dearly like to know his story following leaving the army. If anyone has William in their tree or knows of his demise I would be most grateful if you would contact me please to point me in the right direction. Thank you, Jan.
