He enlisted as a soldier in July 1916 and by that time he was working as a ‘hall keepers assistant’. He served as a private with the Royal Army Medical Corp and from his papers it is known he was 5ft 6.5 inches tall. After the war the family continued to live at 12 Guildhall Place and Henry died aged 44 years old.
