Private E.C. Williams was married to M. Williams.  He joined the Somerset Light Infantry and became part of the 2nd/5th Battalion Territorial Forces.  Records show that this unit was formed in Taunton in September 1914, and set sail for India on 12th December 1914.  From this information we can only assume that Private Williams died onboard ship and was buried when the transports stopped at Egypt en route to India.
