Genealogical Data

1911 Census

Benjamin McNally (40, Labourer, born Ireland), his wife Agnes (41, born Great Bridge), and Agnes's 4 children: James Cannell (21, Labourer in Blast Furnace, born West Bromwich), Martha Cannell (17, General Servant, born West Bromwich), Lydia Cannell (4, born South Bank, Yorks), and Harold Cannell (1, born South Bank, Yorks).

Marriage of James E. Cannell and Maud Rollison registered December quarter 1912 at Middlesbrough.
Personal Data
James is commemorated here because 'Soldiers Died in the Great War' shows him as 'born Tipton', this is probably not the case. The 1891 census shows him as 1 year old, born in West Bromwich, and living in Elwell Street, West Bromwich; both his parents are shown as born in Tipton. Elwell Street is in Great Bridge, but in the part which is West Bromwich rather than Tipton. The family moved to the Middlesborough area before the 1901 census.

James married Maud Rollison in December quarter 1912 at Middlesbrough, their son James was born December quarter 1915. As James senior had embarked for France on 26th August 1915, sadly it is unlikley that he ever saw his son.

After James' death, his widow Maud received his outstanding army pay and allowances of £2/10/6d (2 pounds, 10 shillings and 6 pence) in March 1916. His War Gratuity of £5/10/0d (5 pounds and 10 shillings) was paid in August 1919; by his time Maud was Maud Stanley as she had married Frank Stanley in June quarter 1918.
Action resulting in his death
The 8th Yorkshire Regiment, as part of 23rd Division, landed in France in August 1915, and by September were receiving instruction in the skills needed to hold the front line. In mid-September they were considered 'trench-ready' and were allocated to the Bois Grenier area, just south of Armentieres, near the Franco-Belgian border.

This was not considered a 'hot' sector as no major actions were taking place, but during their days in the front line they were still subject to German artillery and rifle fire. The 8th Yorkshires had four men killed in December 1915, and James was their first loss in January 1916.

It is not known how James was wounded, but he was a patient at the 20th General Hospital at Camiers at the time of his death on 22nd January 1916. James was buried in the nearby Etaples Military Cemetery.
