Corporal Thomas William Lane
« on: Saturday 12 January 19 11:59 GMT (UK) »

Age 39
Death Date 13 Aug 1942
Cemetery Freetown King Tom Cemetery
Father Thomas William Lane & Mother Sarah Ann Lane (nee Blinkhorn)
Regimental Number 3438996

(I'm guessing he did not marry as no wife listed in this entry?!?)

He had a sister Emily Lane who married on 11 Jun 1927 in Bolton, Lancashire, England to Daniel Longworth - I think they had two daughters.

any info on him welcome - thanks
