  • Richard Clifford had a younger brother named Lloyd George Clifford, born in 1914.
  • Both Chris Twiggs and John Carey have found this entry on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission for chaplain Harry Dickinson.
  • There is a suggestion that Lillie Dicks is in fact this lady; but I can find no record of her having died, so she may not be the person who appears on the Queen Street Congregational Church War Memorial.
  • William Edward Elks had a sister, Lizzie, born in Bilston in 1904.
  • The drawings of Harry Poulson were produced while the 1/6th South Staffords were in the front line near Wulverghem, holding positions that crossed the Wulverghem-Messines Road.
  • Charles Wallbank is probably the same man who is buried in Brockley & Ladywell cemeteries – SE London.
  • Thomas Whittle was possibly in the Boer War during the period of the 1901 census as he attested for the 3rd Battalion of the South Staffordshire Regiment. By 1911 his parents, Jane and Thomas, had had 8 children in total (7 of whom were still living). Clarice and Blanche had presumably married by this date, and Benjamin was calling himself George Benjamin. Thomas and Annie were still living in Wolverhampton in the 1939 register.
  • William Whittle was a member of the “Non-Manual Section” of the 6th South Staffords, and his parents erected a memorial to him which is located inside St Peter’s. With regard to his appointment as a Lance-Corporal, it was not a rank at this time but an appointment, and it may have been that Whittle was an unpaid acting Lance-Corporal at the time of his death.
