Private 5189 Willie Thorpe - Duke of Wellington’s (West Riding Regiment)
Private 5189 Willie Thorpe - Duke of Wellington’s (West Riding Regiment) who died of pneumonia at a hospital on Salisbury Plain on 1st May 1916. He is recorded on the CWGC website at. http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2752298/THORPE,%20WILLIE I only realised today that the Willie Thorpe I am remembering is not my man and has no connection with the records I have. Any help appreciated Many thanks Wayne

Thank you Yvonne, I have also located David Thorpe via the schedule and added to his life story too

I have added this Life Story for you .... please see https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/7665508 .
(I'm not sure if you've noticed, but if you look at the associated documents for him on the CWGC site, the image of the headstone schedule shows next of kin as D Thorpe (a brother maybe?) and gives an address for him.)
