No known grave. Commemorated on YPRES (MENIN GATE) MEMORIAL Ieper, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. Panel 21.

William was born in 1896 to Harry Edward and Emily, though another report gives the date of birth as 1899. The Chesterton Directory lists H. E. Hall as a bootmaker living at 8 Springfield Road, but in 1920 they had moved to 12 Springfield Road. He attended St. Luke's School and was also a Sergeant in the 4th (St. Andrews) Company of the Boys' Brigade. After first working for a Mr. Finch, plumber, of Chesterton Road, William then worked for the Cambridge University Press. He left the Boys Brigade at 15 and joined the Cambridgeshire Territorial Regiment. The Regiment was mobilised on August 4th 1914; William was with them as private no. 1452. At some time during the war he served also with the Royal Garrison Artillery, but it was as a Corporal No.325 186 in the 8th Battalion, Suffolk Regiment that he was killed in action on 13th August 1917, aged 21.

How or where he met his death I have been unable to find out; he has no known grave and is commemorated on the Menin Gate, panel 21. The Cambridge Daily News has a report of his death on August 27th 1917 and the Cambridge Independent Press has a photo of him and his half-brother Cpl. G. L. Eusden. There is also an interesting letter from Sgt. Brooks, his platoon sergeant. The Cambridge Chronicle has a report and photo on October 3rd 1917.
