W Allaway's name on Newbury War Memorial

(lower left)

The name W Allaway appears on Panel 3 of the Newbury Town War Memorial. He is not on any other West Berkshire memorial found to date.

There are six W Allaways recorded in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s roll of honour but there is no reference in any of their records of a link to Newbury.  The most likely record is that of William Charles Allaway, the son of William and Agnes Allaway of 123 Alpine Street, Reading. 

Nor is there any reference to a W Allaway in the Newbury Weekly News Local War Notes column or in the Active Service Roll they published up to the end of 1915.

Nor do any Allaways appear in the census for Newbury of 1911, the Valuation Survey of Newbury (c1912), or a 1913 street directory.

In short, there is no way of determining for certain which, if any, of the deceased W Allaways is referred to on the Newbury Memorial.

If anyone can help to identify this man, we should be very grateful to hear from you.
