William Baines Harris

Liz Standen writes: William Baines Harris was engaged to my grandmother Ada Louch. He was from Eardington. If you look at the 1911 census it shows the Louchs at Bilton Fields, Inwoods, Rugby. William Baines Harris, born 1890, was a farm worker and my grandmother, born 1894, was a niece/visitor.

Liz has kindly provided these images:

This memorial has mostly been compiled from official sources. It would be good to be able to expand it with more personal material - memories, stories, photos, etc. If you have any suitable material or any corrections please contact Greg. For news of updates follow @BridgnorthHeros on Twitter.
