Thomas Seeley was the son of Thomas and Mary Ellen Seeley of 14 Stourbridge Road, Halesowen. He enlisted, probably in 1917, in the Warwicks Territorials and went to the 2/8th Battalion. They were closely engaged in the Third Battle of Ypres in 1917 and then moved to the Arras sector. In March 1918 the German Spring offensive was widely anticipated and the Warwicks in the front line near St. Quentin on the 21st March felt the full force of the enemy attack. They were overwhelmed by the strength of the attack and in the subsequent retreat Private Thomas Seeley was among the many killed in action during the next day. He was 19 years of age and is commemorated on the Pozičres and Halesowen Memorials.
