Loos Memorial (Dud Corner Cemetery) (panel 44 & 45)
Enlisted at Alnwick, Northumberland.
Fenwick's service number was only 14 numbers above Peter Davidson, & close to David A. Proudlock, so they may have enlisted together. Alexander Stephen was killed on same day & John Tully 2 days later.
Fenwick was born in 1895, at Whittingham, Northumberland, the son of Arthur Fenwick (b. 1866 at Washington, County Durham; a Joiner & Cartwright), & his wife Isabella (b. 1870 at Rothbury).
In 1891 Arthur was one of three joiners lodging with Robert Ferguson, also a joiner, & his family at Whittingham. By 1901 Arthur was living at North Side, Whittingham with his wife & family; William, the eldest & two daughters Mary (b. 1897) & Caroline (b. 1900).
In 1911 the family was still living at Whittingham. Fenwick had left school & was working as a Butcher; Mary had no occupation; Caroline was still at school; & there was another daughter, Margaret Annie (b. 1902).
