Pre War

Alfred Bagnall was born in 1877 to William and Lucy Bagnall of Great Haywood, Staffordshire. He appears to have spent much of his life with his grandparents, George and Elizabeth Bagnall, living with them on the 1881 and 1891 Censuses at The Ring, Colwich, Staffordshire. 

Wartime Service

He enlisted at Rugeley, Staffordshire initially into the RAMC (Reg. No. 76409), and embarked from Southampton to Salonica in August 1916. He was transferred compulsorily into the Welsh Regt in March 1918 and declared missing on 18 September 1918, but is believed to be buried in the Dorian Military cemetery.

Additional Information

Arthur Bagnall is named on the Tewin war memorial and St Peters Church muster roll. However, an Alfred Bagnall is shown on the Absent Voters' List for Tewin in Autumn 1918 and Spring 1919 living at Tewin Water.(Probably a servant working at Tewin Water House). CWGC documents give his name as Alfred. A war gratuity of £6 10s was granted to his mother Lucy. His Headstone reads "THEIR GLORY SHALL NOT BE BLOTTED OUT"
