WWI soldier tracing.

My paternal great grandfather fought in WWI. He was awarded campaign medals, and I have a photograph of him in uniform from the period.

I do not know the regiment he fought in, or where he saw service.

I have tried using the WWI search on Ancestry.co.uk, and found nothing.

One previous search found a similar name(different spelling) in an area a few miles from his known residence.

We do not know if this is/was him, or simply a similar sounding soldier.

Are there any better ways of finding out the info I need?

His name was Edward Weals, he fought in WWI, he was from the Norton/Stockton area in the North East of England.

Any help welcome.

Thank you.
