Old Photograph Request
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

February 18, 2016:

World War 1 Project
I am very keen to find any photographs or information of the men (and their families) named on the War Memorial in respect of WW1. I have managed to trace a few significant photographs but wondered if in local family collections there was a chance that there could be hiding a photograph or even letters sent back home from any of the named men in the list below? I am able to copy any items found so that they remain in family collections.
More names will be added in following months.
William Ellacott 1878-1917 Royal Engineers and South Staffordshire Reg, died of wounds 20.10.17 in Belgium. Son of William and Jane Ellacott, Higher St. William`s wife Leah was born in Meeth but was living in Victoria Road when he died, their son also called William.
