The Collins Family
Name William L or John COLLINS
Date of death 3 Nov 1915 United Kingdom
Parents Ellen Collins widow
Notes name on WM is William L Collins - only William J Collins in CWGC & SDGW
Information taken from the Buckinghamshire Remembers website.
It is difficult to know why the name Ellen has been recorded for William's next of kin as there appears to be no evidence that his father married twice.
William's cousin, once removed, Ruth Collns, married Ernest Gibson. Ruth's sister Annie is connected to William Redding's family.
The Collins family are connected to many local village families and further links with
other men on the memorial are likely to be discovered - watch this space!
Do Collins descendants still live in the village today.
