Northumberland Fusiliers, 1/4th Battalion Territorial Force
Arras Memorial (Faubourg d'Amiens Cemetery)
Enlisted at Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland.
Born about 1889, at Hauxley, Morpeth, Northumberland, the son of Robert (b. about 1851; at Hauxley; a Fish Merchant) & Mary (b. about 1853; also at Hauxley) Taylor.
The 1911 Census records Taylor having three sisters: Ellen (b. about 1886; a Dressmaker); Isabella (b. about 1893); & Mary Hancock (b. about 1900). All were born at Hauxley.
The Census also records his parents having had seven children, six of who were, then, still living. Presumably, the oldest two were then making their own way in life.
Pre-enlistment occupation: Coal Miner.
