Known information

W Kay appears on the War Memorial in the grounds of St Mary the Virgin Church in Ketton, which remembers all the thirty eight men from Geeston and Ketton who died in the Great War. We can find no other record of him - he is not mentioned in George Phillips' biographies of those who died and we cannot find a suitable entry from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.  

Do you know something about W that hasn't been mentioned?
