Biography:

Percy Lloyd was born in 1885.  He was christened on 24th May 1885 in Leyton, Essex.

Percy was the third of four children born to Frederick and Ada Lloyd.  Records show that Percy’s father Frederick died in 1887.  His mother remarried.  In 1901 Percy was living with his stepfather, John Fielder (a labratory assistant at University College), his mother Ada Titterton Fielder, his two sisters, Ethel Ada Lloyd and Amy Isabel Lloyd and his brother, Horace at 97 Hanley Road.  Also living at the address were is step-siblings: Adelaide, Ruth and Albert. By 1911, Percy was working as a clerk (like his father before him) living at 19 Duckett Road in Haringey with his step-father, mother and two sisters.

Percy joined the 1st/6th Battalion London Regiment (City of London Rifles); service number 2772. During the night of 17/18 March the 1st/6th Londons sailed to Le Havre aboard the SS La Marguerite. Percy was killed in action on 15th September 1916 and is commemorated at Thiepval Memorial Cemetery in France. He was 30 years old.
