Hi Walker,
Enoch Moore was born in Halesowen ,Worcestershire in1894.
The 1901 Census records his parents Enoch and Eva and 5 other siblings residing at Hasbury School Lane.
On the 1911 Census he is a boarder at 2 Guants Yard, High St. Halesowen .Both parents appear to have died.
He enlisted in Worcester giving his residence as Walsall and first saw service 25/4/1915 (Balkans Area)
Enoch was killed in action ( France and Flanders) 20th July 1916. He was awarded the 1914-15 Star, War and Victory Medals.
His next of kin would also have recieved his Memorial Plaque.
Regards,
corona

No service or pension papers appear to have survived.
Many were lost or damaged as the result of the German bombing of London in WW11.
