Birmingham (Warstone Lane) Cemetery was one of the cemeteries in which the casualties from four major hospitals in Birmingham, and many smaller hospitals, were interred in the First World War.

Birmingham (Warstone Lane) Cemetery contains 51 First World War burials and 13 from the Second World War. A Screen Wall commemorates by name those whose graves are not marked by headstones. A soldier of the Yorkshire Regiment is commemorated on this Screen Wall.

Richard Roberts (<richard@nosnailshere.co.uk>) has provided the photo of the Screen Wall at Birmingham (Warstone Lane) Cemetery and a close up of the panel on which the name occurs.
