Private W Grou, 27th Middlesex Regiment

W Grou appears in a special list of attested men in the January 1916 issue of Chailey’s parish magazine. 

In May 1916, the magazine notes that he is serving with the 27th Middlesex Regiment in England and appears to have then served with them up until March 1917 which is when his name ceases to appear in the parish magazine.

Nothing more is known of this man and genealogical searches have revealed little.  England and Wales, Civil Registration Index: 1837-1983 lists two possibilities: William George Grou born in Camberwell in 1895 and George William Grou born in Holborn in 1876.  A search for census returns under the surname “Grou” yielded no results at all.
