He arrived in India with the Regiment on Saturday 3 July 1915 and was killed in action on 10 July 1915.
He is also remembered on The North Wales Heroes Memorial Arch, Deiniol Road, Bangor, North Wales and on a Remembrance Plaque at The Royal Alexandra Hospital, Marine Drive, Rhyl, Flintshire.
There is a Flintshire Roll of Honour Card for William Lloyd at the County Archives Office, Hawarden, Flintshire, which was completed by J Jones Williams and dated 12 September 1919.
