Thanks again. Is there anyway I can find out about Frederick. I couldn't see a service record for him and I think he was in mental hospital in 1939.

"There was another brother who I think served in WW1 - Frederick born 1881 but I can't find a service record for him. He married Daisy Snow in 1912. She is on the 1939 census as a widow. I have found a possible for Frederick in 1939 in the County Mental Hospital, Chester - right age and occupation (dairyman) and a possible death 1948. Not sure getting the death certificate will give me confirmation as the informant will be hospital superintendent."

Just to skip back to Rowland.
He was in 215 Bty. RGA but unfortunately their war diary only goes up to March 1917
your man was wounded in July 1917.
However his Brigade (93rd) does cover that period & is downloadable at TNA for 3.50.
