Norman Lane was born in Wolverhampton on 13 August 1896. In 1901 he was living with his parents John W. and Emma, and sister Bessie, at 6 Wood Street, Heath Town, Wolverhampton. By 1911, they had moved to 238 Prestwood Road, Heath Town, Wolverhampton, and were joined by Norman’s siblings Gertrude, Leah and Dennis. Norman was an apprentice brass caster.
Norman served initially as a Corporal in the South Staffordshire Regiment (service number 23830) and later in the Lincolnshire Regiment (service number 43320). Whilst in the latter regiment, there was a notice in the Express & Star on 12 May 1917, stating that he had been wounded. However, he did survive the War
There are a few possible marriages for him, but none that I can pin down to him. He died in Wolverhampton in 1976.
