Ormrod, Lionel James

Lionel James Ormrod was born in 1883. He is not named on the Memorial in Bangor on Dee but we include him here because two of his brothers also died in the War and ARE named on the Memorial. All three brothers are named on a private memorial inside the church at Bangor on Dee. It reads as follows:

From Mr O Ormrod of Pickhill Hall to the memory of three of his sons, a great loss. Lt Col Lionel James Ormrod, 12th Royal Lancers, Captain Oliver Hugh Ormrod RFA and RFC and Captain Lawrence Moreland Ormrod MC RWF

Lionel James was missnamed on the 1891 census. He was listed as Louise

In the 1901 census Lionel James was 18 and an Army Student candidate at a private School in  Lathbury, Newport Pagnell in Buckinghamshire.

So far he has not been traced on the 1911 census. (Possibly abroad with the army?)
