Henry was born in Knowsley on 1873, one of 5 sons of John and Margaret Burrows.
The 1914 Electoral Roll, shown below, states that Henry lived at 43, High Street, where he had recently moved to from 5, Derby Street. However, CWGC records show that his widow, Emma, was back living at No 17, Derby Street when their registers were collated in the 1920's.
I have been unable to locate details of any overseas service for Pte Burrows and therefore assume that he served only in the UK. A list of 14 men who served with 8th Coy, RAMC, and who died in the Great War period shows that they are all buried in the UK, which supports this theory.
Private Burrows grave in a poor state of repair in Prescot Churchyard. CWGC records show that there was once a white marble cross mounted on the grave, but this has disappeared.
