Herbert William Thomas died 7th October 1916

A few years ago I posted an article to the site about Herbert William Thomas who lived in our house along with his parents John and Gertrude and older sisters Ellen and Marion one hundred years ago. I also wrote about the terrible fate that awaited Herbert

Last week I found this small notice that was placed in the Yorkshire Telegraph and Star dated 19th October 1916. 

The only and dearly loved son of John and Gertrude was known as Billie. Billie has no known grave and is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial - Grave/Memorial Reference: Pier and Face 11 C and 12 A.
