Pioneer Thomas Henry Williams, 244645, 2nd Field Survey Company Royal Engineers, died of wounds in France on July 26th, 1917. He was aged 27 and single.

A letter from Capt W. Coates to parents John and Emma Williams, of 10 Essex Street, Luton, was however dated July 26th and said:"Yesterday, while coming off duty, he was caught by a shell and, I regret to say, died in the hospital soon after."

Thomas Williams had been in the Army for 14 months, ten of them spent in France. Previously he was an employee of Vauxhall Motors.

A family announcement in the Luton News included the name of Miss E. Loose. Ella Loose, who was living with her family in Tavistock Street, Luton, in 1911, may have been Thomas's fiancee.
