“It is with great regret that we record the death of Sapper S. Lloyd, R.E. The sad news came as a great surprise, he having left England for the front only a month ago. He was the son of the late Mr. George Lloyd and Mrs. Lloyd of 17, Pickering Street, Hoole. Seized with illness on Sunday, February 18, he was admitted to the hospital, but succumbed on Monday 19th to meningitis. He was well known in Chester and highly respected. Previous to joining the colours he was in the employ of the late Mr R. Pinnington, Brook Street. He was an enthusiastic and valued worker in the Primitive Methodist Church, Hamilton Street, and will be sorely missed, especially amongst the children with whom he was a great favourite. Deep sympathy is felt with his widowed mother and sister, and with his younger brother, Arthur, serving in Egypt. The deep sympathy of the church at Hamilton Street found expression on Sunday evening and was conveyed to the sorrowing home. A memorial service has been arranged for Sunday morning March 11th at 10.45, conducted by the Rev. E.A. Steen.
