Hi members
I know that this is maybe going to be a long shot ,so some pointers has to where to look would be helpful-please
The following details are all that I have
????WATTS died 1st world war served with the Worcestershire Reg
his name is commemorated on the Aldershot cenataph
1/where would I find a transaction of the commemoration from the cenataph-this would at least give me a first name initial
which would then enable me to track his service record
thank you

The details of Arthur Stanley Watts on the CWGC website shows his father living in London. There is an opportunity to have a certificate style of his commemoration which also has a photo of the cemetery. I found 10 people with the name of Watts who had served with the Worcestershire Regiment in WWI, and I agree with the post above.

Thank you
Armed with this info I will see if any other family member remembers anything
I think that it is going to be difficult,has he was betrothed to someone before he went of to war -and she was pregnant,when he was killed in action it was decided that the baby was to be sent to live with other family members -I believe in Norfolk-these people took the baby and brought the child up as their own-I do not have the name of the child -nor the family member`s names has if indeed it was Norfolk then at that time there was a very large extended branch of the tree there
