Grandads Brother.

Hi all,this is a very vague request regarding info i can give but i have recently found out that a brother of my Grandad died in WW1.

Now all i know is that his sirname would have been Ferris and that his name may have been Bill,as you know my census and looking for clues skills are zilch.

To be honest i know a lot of brave souls by the name of Ferris perished so it would probably have to be done on the knowledge that my dads name is Geoffrey Leslie Ferris born in Southampton and all his relatives and most probably the man who died was born in the Southampton area possibly Bitterne or Hedge End.

Not expecting a lot on this because of lack of info but thought i would try anyway.

Regards to you all................Lee.
