Davies, Robert Edward

Have not been able to trace him for sure on census returns.

UK Soldiers Who Died in The Great War 1914 -19 accessible on confirms the regimental details at the top of this page. It adds that he enlisted in Trefynant, Denbigh. (Trefnant?). This source tells us he was killed in action. His Medal index card also on Ancestry lists his medals and tells us that his first Theatre of War was France and he entered it on 1st December 1915.

There is an index card for him in The Flintshire Roll of Honour at The County Record Office in Hawarden. It is filed with the Gronant cards not the Llanasa ones. The address given is Lletty-y-Coed, Gronant, Llanasa. His number and regiment are confirmed as above. He served for 3 years and 8 months and was killed in June 1918 in Albert France. The card was signed on 18th September 1918 by K Roberts – who signed all the Gronant cards.

In the Register of deceased soldiers’  Effects (on Ancestry) I believe that the name ‘Mary’ is the authorised person to whom outstanding monies were paid. His wife? mother? Sister? more research to be done on this soldier.

He is also named on the Gronant memorial.
