    Hi I saw your ‘Help Wanted’ page today. I subscribe to Ancestry.co.uk and after a bit of searching have found a Newspaper article relating to private Herbert Wragg’s death on 1 July 1916, if this would be of interest to those researching?
    Name:
    Herbert Wragg
    Gender:
    Male
    Age:
    22
    Birth Date:
    abt 1894
    Death Date:
    1 Jul 1916
    Cemetery:
    The Thiepval Memorial
    Burial Country:
    France
    Regiment:
    East Yorkshire Regiment
    Regimental Number:
    11213
    Region or Memorial:

    There is a newspaper article attached to the search stating that Herbert was a Lance Corporal, aged 22 and that he was the husband of Grace E Hackett (formerly Wragg) of Sheffield.
    I do hope that this is helpful?
