Additional Information

Lawrence was born in Kennington in 1889 to William and Sarah Walsh. He was the youngest of 4, with three older sisters: Lilian, Mabel, and Gertrude. The family lived at 2 Haydons Road in Wimbledon, later moving to 252 Haydons Road.
Lawrence attended Rutlish School.
His father, William worked as a tailor’s cutter, and eventually became a tailor, and Lawrence appears to have followed in his footsteps, as he is listed as a tailor’s cutter on the 1911 census, when he was staying with a master tailor in Barnes who appears to have been his employer.

He enlisted with the RAF and was killed on 28 October 1918. He left £122 to his father.
