Born in Wrenbury, Nantwich, Cheshire in 1895, the eldest son of Joseph Charles and Martha Gregory of 62 Village Green, Wrenbury, Nantwich, Cheshire.
The 1911 Census shows Harold employed as a cowman on Sandford farm, Aston, Nantwich.
Harold was taken prisoner of war some time in 1914 (he is reported as missing in October 1914, presumed taken as prisoner). We know he was in the Sennelager POW camp in January 1915 and was likely to still be a POW when he died from pulmonary tuberculosis, presumed 20 February 1916.
