I am interested to learn anything about my paternal grandfather, who was born in Ongar Essex about 1881. I know that he joined the Essex Regiment in 1914 and received a shell wound in Gallipolli from which he died in 1916 at the Star and Garter Home in Richmond. He is buried in Richmond Cemetary near the South African War Memorial. Unfortunately I know nothing about his background or his parent`s background. He left a grieving widow behind and two young sons, one of them, William David was my father.His address when he joined up, was 163 Harold Road Upton Park London.
