Among the names listed on the Roll of Honour in the Lady Chapel of St Peter’s Church is a Harold Norman Adcock, and the Wolverhampton War Memorials site gives the following information about him:

Adcock, Harold Norman, 2nd Lieutenant, East Kent Regiment (The Buffs), died 8th October 1918 aged 20. Son of Alfred W. and Louisa Adcock, of High Street, Coleshill, Warwickshire. Buried at High Tree Cemetery, Montbrehain, France.

The mystery is what his name is doing on this plaque, as so far I have been unable to find any connection with Wolverhampton. Harold Norman Adcock was born in Aston in 1898. By the 1901 census he is living in Yardley, and I have been unable to find any further traces of him. When he died his parents were clearly living in Warwickshire. If anyone can solve this mystery, it would be great to hear from you!
