Rifleman Tom Edmondson, King’s Royal Rifle Corps, only son of Mr and Mrs William E Edmonson of 10 Taunton Street, Shipley, was killed on June 27th. He was 21 years of age and for several years he took an active interest in the Shipley Church Lads’ Brigade. His parents have received a sympathetic letter from the London headquarters of that organisation.  Letters to hand from two of his comrades speak of him as a fine soldier and a valued friend. Before joining the army on the outbreak of war, he was employed by Mr John Greenwood, cabinet maker, Shipley. Shipley Times & Express 14 July 1916
