FLETCHER Thomas

Thomas FLETCHER

Thomas is named on the village war memorial and a Thomas G Fletcher is listed on the Queensbury roll shown living at Ambler Thorn.  No further information can be found to accurately identify Thomas.

There is a possibility that Thomas was the son of James and Margaret Fletcher who lived off Charleston Road, Halifax.  Serving in the Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, 19-year-old Thomas was wounded in the opening days of the Somme battles.  He died in hospital at Wandsworth, London on 11th July 1916 and is buried at HALIFAX (STONEY ROAD) CEMETERY.
