Other Information:

Percy enlisted at Buxton into the 58th Field Ambulance. 'The Buxton Advertiser' (13th April 1918) said that: "Our fallen friend joined up soon after the outbreak and had 3½ years in France with the Field Ambulance". When reporting his death 'The Buxton Advertiser' (13th April 1918) gave some indication of the circumstances of Percy's end by reproducing the contents of a letter from Capt. (Acting Lt. Col.) Richard Amyas PRESTON, M.C. as follows: "... I am sorry to have to tell you that your husband .... was killed in action on March 24th. I take it you have already heard officially from the War Office but I wished to express to you my deepest sympathy and that of all his comrades in the ambulance. He was killed instantaneously by a shell while carrying wounded through a heavy barrage. You will, at least, have the satisfaction of knowing that he died as a brave man should." Percy was the son of Joseph (Platelayer) and Esther Mary (née Litchfield) Wood of South Street, Riddings, Derbyshire. He had a younger sister, Ethel, (1901 Census RG 13/3233). By 1911 (Census RG 14/21234) the family had moved to 5 Fox's Yard, Fairfield, Buxton, presumably because Joseph had changed to a different railway company. Percy was also working for the Railway as an “Asst Porter Passenger Dept” and lodging with the Green family at 28 Wirksmoor Road, Newtown, New Mills, Derbyshire. (Census RG 14/21305). In October 1917 Percy had married Ellen (Nellie) Brindley. She was the daughter of Mr and Mrs James Brindley and after Percy’s death she returned to live with them at 35 Lyme Terrace, Burbage, Buxton.
