 He died of congestion of the lungs 15th August 1916 aged 36. His Flintshire Roll of Honour card states that he died of pneumonia in Park Hall Camp Oswestry  (Gobowen) after serving for two years. Signed by Lavinia Davies

Edward was born in 1880/82 The 1911 census places him living with his wife Lavinia at 15 Garden Place Mold. They had no children and he was a coal miner below ground. The form tells us that he had been born in Gwernaffield and that she had been born in Glamorgan.

I believe they married in Pontypridd glamorgan in 1909

His Commonwealth War Grave Certificate tells us that he had lived in Rhydygolau and that after his death Lavinia remarried someone called Davies.
