William Clement Tunaley

b. 1894, Kennington, Surrey

Paul Tunaley provides the following information from army records:

William Tunaley died in January, 1922. his address at the time was either 375 or 37, Rue Bois Bonnet, Maisons-Laffitte, Seine et Dise, France. This was almost certainly the same address as that of his late father Robert James Tunaley (b. 1861 d. 1895). William enlisted in the Army 1915, age given as 21, and saw action in Egypt. He contracted malaria which led to TB, the cause of his death in Paris in 1922. Year of birth, according to these records, would have been 1894 rather than the 1897 given in the 1901 census (in the latter case he would have been aged 18 rather than 21 at the time of enlistment, 1915).

William Clement Tunaley's next of kin when he joined the army 1915 was his mother Mary Elizabeth Tunaley of 82 Coningham Road, Shepherd's Bush.

N.B. Robert's first son Edouard died in 1919 following WW1 (click here).
