Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the Bridgnorth area who died during the two World Wars.

Hunter W. Pte. K.S.L.I.

The only Private W Hunter listed in Wood: The History of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry in the Great War is William Hunter, born Kendal, Westmorland. I have not yet found any connection to Claverley.

He is possibly the William Hunter, born Kendal c. 1878 working as a domestic coachman in Ross, Herefordshire, in 1911. Maybe he had worked for one of the estates in Claverley parish (or was a relation of someone else who did.)

Private William Hunter, 25074, KSLI, enlisted at Dolgelly and served in the 1st Battalion. He was killed in action on 16th October, 1917 - on which day the enemy 'attempted a raid on 'A' Company' [Wood p.44]. He is buried in Loos British Cemetery.

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.
