William (Billy) Braham

Submitted by David Jessop

Billy, killed in 1917, was engaged to my mother's sister, Maggie Colton. She never married. Billy lived at 5, Warren Lane with his dad, mum, sister and two younger brothers. He was 26 and the 1911 census shows him as a carter and general worker. He had enlisted in the West Yorks Regt but was transferred to the Northumberland Fusiliers to make up numbers due to casualties.
