Joseph Mytton was born in 1890 in Tettenhall, the son of Edwin and Mary Mytton, of 2 Shaw Lane, Tettenhall Wood.

When war broke out, he enlisted with the Royal Garrison Artillery (number 50941) and became a member of the 21st Trench Mortar Battery. On 27 April 1916, he died of wounds received in action. He appeared in a list of “Midland Men in Casualty Lists” in the Express & Star on 20 May 1916. He is commemorated at the Bethune Town Cemetery in France. His mother, Mary, died aged 69 in 1920.

I have not been able to find out much further information about Joseph Mytton or his family.
