Yesterday we featured the sons of Mr Lloyd of Vicarage Road, Wednesfield. The remaining members of the family are as below:
Alfred Ernest Lloyd was born in 1883, and he was also still living with his parents in 1901. By this date, he had become an iron padlock maker. On 20 December 1906, he married Emily Barnbrooke in New Jersey, America. They had two daughters – Hannah Elizabeth, born in 1909 in New Jersey, and Emily Priscilla, born in 1913 in Wednesfield. On 23 August 1914, Alfred enlisted with the 6th Battalion of the Leicestershire Regiment (number 10657). By the date of his enlistment, his wife was living at 29 Hickman Street, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton. He served in France from 29 July 1915, and had bouts of bronchitis and scabies. He was killed in action on 29 September 1916. He is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial.
William was born in 1895. He was still living with his parents in 1911, now at Vicarage Road, Wednesfield. He became a locksmith. I have not been able to confirm William’s military service details, or further details of his life, but he does appear to have survived the war.
William Taylor was the husband of their sister, Selina Lloyd, whom he married on 25 December 1911 in Aston. The couple had a son, Henry, born in Wolverhampton in 1915. Again, I have not been able to confirm details of his military service, but William died in Birmingham on 23 June 1971.
