Ernest Charles Scattergood entered theatre after 1 January 1916, possibly as a conscript. He was probably wounded or taken ill during the battalion's winter occupation of front line trenches near St Pierre Divion next to the River Ancre, (Somme). It was a waterlogged area and illness was ever present. Ernest would have been moved down the casualty clearing line to a hospital in the UK ( probably Bagthorpe War Hospital Nottingham) and died of his wounds/illness. His grave is in Nottingham General Cemetery, grave 3341.
