Private Thomas Ellis


Harrogate Herald - 6th June 1917

Roll of Honour

Sympathy will be extended to Mrs Ellis, 51 Cecil Street, Bilton, who has just received an intimation from the War Office that her husband, Private Thomas Ellis (West Yorks), was reported missing on the 3rd of May. Private Ellis, who, up to joining last June, was with Mr Lambert, butcher, Killinghall, proceeded to France on October 2nd. The news, as in many other local cases, has brought much anxiety; but, from information so far to hand, no one appears to have seen him fall, nor can it be definitely stated that he was taken prisoner. He suffered acutely from rheumatism and trench feet during the winter. Mrs Ellis would be pleased if any of the soldier comrades of her husband can furnish her with any information regarding him.


Harrogate Herald - 11th July 1917

Roll of Honour

Mrs T Ellis, 51 Cecil Street, Harrogate, has received, through her brother-in-law, Private H Knowles, DSO, a communication from Lieutenant Colonel Stuart Taylor, West Yorks, with respect to her husband, Private T Ellis (33747), West Yorks, who was reported missing after the action on May 3rd. He says :"In reply to you letter, I deeply regret to say that no news is at present available regarding Private T Ellis. He took part in the attack on the German positions east of Gavrolle on May 3rd last, and went gallantly forward with his platoon. When the battalion was mustered after the fight, I much regret to say, he was among them missing. You have my deepest sympathy in your anxiety, and we all grieve to have lost a good comrade and a brave soldier. Any further news which may be received I will send to you at once".
