"Lest we Forget"

Let us remember not only the fallen on this, the ninetieth anniversary of the Armistice, which brought the First World War to an end, but all those that entered into that conflict.
The list below is a combination of names taken from the Medal Roll, Service & Pension Records of men who served in the Army during 1914-1918.
If you can add information to those on the list, please leave a comment in the space provided.

With reference to William Gronnow of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and the Welsh Regiment, numbers 8590, 15511 and 266912. I believe that he may be my Grandfather (My Mother was Jane Gronnow), though as the Index Card is blank apart from name, regimental numbers and Victory Medal number, I've found it difficult to prove. He served in France, and the photo of him in army uniform is very much like the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, though the photo is very tired looking. He was gassed in France and returned to recuperate in Oswestry. If this is my Grandfather, he was born in Farndon, Cheshire in 1887, and died in Penycae, near Wrexham in 1952.
