Walter William Heath


Full name Walter William Heath, born on 4 February 1888 in Holton, son of Charles Heath and Elizabeth Gleed, and brother of Charles junior and Percy Heath. Charles senior was landlord of the King and Queen from 1899 to 1915, and Walter William lived there with his brothers. He was a house boy (domestic) in 1901 and by 1911 had become a traction engine steerer at a stone quarry. He was mentioned in the Oxford Times of 26 September 1914 as having enlisted in Kitchener's New Army, being assigned in his case to the Royal Irish Fusiliers. Service records appear to indicate that he also served, at least at some point, with the Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry. He married Edith Rose Walduck in the Banbury Registration District on 13 November 1920. He was living at 125 Springfield Avenue in Banbury in 1939, and he died in that area in 1965.
