Arthur Harriman was born in Wolverhampton in 1892, the son of Tom and Mary Harriman. In 1901 they were at 137 Dudley Road, together with Arthur’s brother, Frederick, and a servant, Catherine Whatmore.
Arthur enlisted in the 78th Field Company of the Royal Engineers (number 89824) and attained the rank of Sapper. He was awarded the Military Medal, which was announced in the Gazette on 19 September 1917, and in the Express & Star a day later. Unfortunately, Arthur died not long afterwards, on 16 October 1917. He is commemorated on the Tyne Cot Memorial and on the memorial of St Luke’s Church, Blakenhall.
