Samuel Lloyd was the eldest son of Emma and Samuel Cook Lloyd of 'Woodleigh', Russell Street, Dudley, who was the Mayor of Dudley. He volunteered for the Worcester Territorials, probably before the war, and was commissioned to the 1/7th Battalion. He helped to raise the 3/7th Battalion and then re-joined the 1/7, which was in the 46th (South Midland) Division. They were sent to France in April 1915 and occupied trenches in the newly taken over area of the Somme. It was a quiet sector but the winter of 1916 was cold and wet and both shelling and sniping were frequent. It was while visiting the forward posts on the 16th March that Lieutenant Samuel Lloyd killed. He was 33 years of age and is buried in Louvencourt Cemetery (I B 24) and commemorated on the Dudley and St. James church Memorials.
