Gunner Robert Coates

poppyGunner Robert Coates was born in Heath Hayes in 1897 and so far very little information has been found out about his early life.

The 1901 census records him as a three year old boy, living at a property on Wimblebury Road with his grandfather Enoch Coates.

During the war, Robert served with the R.F.A (Royal Fleet Auxiliary).  He died locally on 17th January 1919.

Robert is commemorated on the Heath Hayes War Memorial.
