Richard and Mrs. Grant received a telegram on May 2, stating that their son, Driver William E. Grant, had died of wounds in France. He had been overseas since February 1916, going with the Sportsman's Battalion from Hamilton, and had never been wounded before. Will was born near Caistorville and his whole life was spent in this community until he enlisted. Besides his parents, he is survived by three brothers, Gordon of Alberta; Miles of Smithville and James in the trenches, and two sisters, Misses May and Myrtle at home. The deepest sympathy goes out to the stricken family. A memorial service will be held on Sunday, May 20, at 2:30 p.m., in the church here.
