I started researching Wilfred Wilson and looked up the Clwyd Family History Memorials for Picton for a clue to his identity, and it showed a note – “Son of John & Harriet Wilson of Gronant???, “ also stating that he is remembered on the Gronant memorial so I started looking for a Wilfred Wilson in Llanasa/Gronant and found a family on the 1911 census that fitted, but could find nothing on the Commonwealth War Graves nor Ancestry to match a Wilfred Wilson, – then I found Viv’s research and story on Gronant, so I decided to show the link to that page on the website. Please click on the link to read his story.
1911 census RG14; Piece: 33902; Schedule Number: 117
Canol y dre,Gronant, Llanasa, Flintshire (All Bilingual) (2 rooms)
WILSON, John Head M 45 (Married 15 years) Scythe Stone Maker all born Llanasa Parish, Flintshire
WILSON, Harriet Wife M 53 At Home (3 Children born, all still living)
WILSON, Wilfred Son 15 Single Labelling Scythe Stone (Scythe Stone Quarry)
WILSON, Victoria Daughter 13 School
WILSON, Gertrude Daughter 11 School
Wilfred would be of an age to be in the war, were there 2 soldiers, one Wilfred Wilson, with no Flintshire WW1 Index card and another William Wilson, with one? Any help would be gratefully received. If so, both need to be remembered.
