William Munt


There were several William Munts of the same generation in Wheatley at the time of the war, and two William John Munts in the Parish Records. But this was very probably another son of William Munt and Rosina nee Southam, born in Wheatley in 1877, thus a brother of Charles Munt and one of the three siblings baptised together on 7 August 1881. At the Censuses he was variously labourer and milker on farm. A William J. Munt is on record as having served with 25th (Cyclist, County of London) Battalion, London Regiment as a Private with the No. 2821, and in the Somerset Light Infantry with the No. 275468. He might possibly have chosen the Somerset Regiment as his mother was born in that county. A William Munt died in 1941 and is buried in Wheatley churchyard.

He lived at 11 Bell Lane.
