The details known are very similar to his brother. Please refer to Griffith Piercy’s page. William died 5 months before his brother. He too is commemorated on the family grave in Northop Churchyard.
Many grateful thanks also to Mrs Jane Bradshaw, niece of Griff and Will for sharing with us so many photographs and artefacts pertaining to the two brothers. We have included some of her other photographs on ‘Sychdyn’s Homefront WW1 page’.
