UK Soldiers who Died in The Great War 1914 -19 accessible on confirms Stanley’s Regimental details as above. It says he resided in Rhydygolau and that he enlisted in Mold. This source tells us he was ‘killed in action’ in France and Flanders. His Medal card, also on ‘Ancestry’ details his medal entitlement.

There is an  index card for him in The Flintshire Roll of Honour in The County Record Office in Hawarden but it is filed with the Mold cards.  The address given on the card is Hollands Row, Gwsaney.  It was signed by his father, Fred.

He also appears on the Mold memorial. .
