Sidney Snow was born in Brierley Hill and lived in Wordsley. He volunteered for the Royal Field Artillery but was transferred to the 2nd Battalion of the Wiltshire Regiment, possibly after return from wounds. They fought on the Somme in 1916 at Albert and the Transloy Ridges and in April 1917 were at Arras in VII Corps commanded by Major General Snow. On the 9th the Battle of Arras opened with a successful advance. The Wiltshires, however, attacked the highly fortified Hindenburg Line village of Neuville Vitasse and had a difficult task. They were unable to break through on this day and casualties included Private Sidney Snow. He is buried in Wancourt Cemetery (Special Memorial 7) and commemorated on the Wordsley Memorial.
