Cyril Arthur Welch

311510, Lieutenant, 5th Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry.

Missing In Action on the  6th October 1944 aged 23 .

Cyril was the son of Mr. and Mrs Arthur Welch; and the husband of Kathleen Anne Welch, of Herne Hill, London.

After the war was over numerous attempts were made to have Cyril’s name added to either the Stevenage memorial, where he was born or to the Herne Hill memorial, where he was living with his wife. Neither local council would allow this to take place and thus his name does not appear on any local memorial.

Groesbeek Memorial, Gelderland, Netherlands. (Panel 4.)
