Through the Royal Welsh Fusiliers website I found some more information about two brothers Benjamin d. 1955 and Cadwaladr d. 1978, both buried in the Llandinorwig churchyard with parents Annie and Cadwaladr.

William was born 05/1893, d. 24 Nov 1918.

There is a sister no one can locate due to the married name change. My next step was to start hunting family trees.

Also have this bit:

Further sources of information: local council administration, local historical society, contemporary local papers and generally knocking on doors.

[Just in case: F/Amb = Field Ambulance, CCS = Casualty Clearing Station, S/Hosp = Stationary Hospital, PUO - Pyrexia of Unknown Origin]
