I believe there is an error on the memorial. I can find no trace of a C. W. Wadmore, but there is evidence that a W. C. Wadmore lived in Stockwell at the appropriate time. In addition, the Soldiers Died in the Great War database includes a William Childs Wadmore, born in Stockwell. Further evidence that a Wadmore family lived in Stockwell includes a parish register recording the baptism in 1892 of Elizabeth Wadmore, daughter of William and Eliza Wadmore of 7 Bromsgrove Road, at St Andrew’s Church, Stockwell.
