Lance Corporal Andrew Walsh. 63291. 2nd/1st Battalion the Yorkshire Regiment.
Son of Michael and Margaret J. Walsh
Died at home 6 October 1919. Age 21.

The Michael Walsh commemorated on the headstone is Andrew Walsh's father.
There is a possibility that Andrew Walsh was not in the Yorkshire Regiment, but was in the Yorkshire Hussars (his name appears on the WW1 Medal Roll for that regiment).
