Extra details

Walter was the 10th of James Robert and Susanna Eliza Bagnall’s twelve children. Walter started work as a barman but had become a milkman by the time he married Violet Keen in 1903 at All Saints, South Lambeth. Walter and Violet moved to Bromley sometime after 1911 where Walter became foreman of the milk department of Bromley Cooperative Stores.

He joined up in February 1917, going to the front in May. The Bromley & District Times states that Violet was left with three young children but only two have been identified. Violet died herself in 1920. She also lost two brothers, one in the army the other in the navy.
