Private Thomas Williams (not listed on the Tattenhall War Memorial)

Private Thomas Williams was a member of the 16th Battalion of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He was the son of Mrs Louisa Edge of White Cottage, Newton Lane, Tattenhall. He died in Flanders Fields on 2 August 1917 and he is remembered on the Menin Gate (Panel 22) in Ypres, Belgium. He was 28 years old. He is not listed on the Tattenhall War Memorial.

In January 1916, Kitchener's Volunteer Army was replaced by a conscripted army. By August 1917, the area in which Private Thomas Williams served was involved in the Third Battle of Ypres. It is likely that he died in this conflict which had started just 3 days earlier. He has no known grave.
