He has no known grave and his name is inscribed on the Thiepval Memorial.

The following report is taken from the local paper "The Kettering Leader".

KETTERING SALVATIONIST LAYS DOWN HIS LIFE

We are deeply sorry to have to report that Mr. and Mrs. S Wells of 63, Ford Street, Kettering, have received the regrettable news that their son, Pte. Sidney Wells of the Norfolk Regiment was killed in action on October 12th, 1916

Pte Wells enlisted in January of the present year in the Norfolk Regiment; and was later transferred to another battalion of the same Regiment. Prior to joining the forces he was in the service of Messrs. F. Wright and Co., of Carey Street, where had been since he left school. He received his education at the Stamford Road Council School, and was an ardent member of the Kettering Corps of the Salvation Army, and is the first member of that organization in Kettering to give his life for his Country's sake. The respect and esteem in which Private Wells was universally held was evidenced on Sunday evening at a memorial service at the Salvation Army Barracks, in field Street. Much sympathy is being expressed with Mr. and Mrs. Wells in their irreparable loss.
