Clay, Arthur Joseph

Arthur Joseph Clay, Major 2/6th Battalion, North Staffordshire Regiment.

Died of sickness 18 February 1915 aged 43, and is buried in Newborough All Saints churchyard Staffordshire. He was the eldest son of Charles John Clay J P of Holly Bush, Newborough. His wife Bridget lived at The Well House, Banstead Surrey after Arthur’s death. He was educated at Harrow and New College, Oxford, and was a director of Bass, Ratcliffe and Gretlon’s brewery, as was his father.

It is unlikely that Arthur served abroad during the war as his Battalion was stationed in England until April 1916, when they went to Dublin.
