A report in the Wellington Journal & Shrewsbury News December 1916 regarding the death of John Grant Lewis.
“The deepest sympathy is felt by all for Mr and Mrs John Lewis of Green End, Whitchurch, in the death of their only son, Rifleman John Grant Lewis, Kings Royal Rifle Corps, who was killed in France during an attack in a wood . The fallen soldier who was 22 years old had won the admiration of his officers for his work on wire in front of the trenches. He was a saddler by trade.”
