Kelita Shaw fought with 2nd Battalion Duke of Wellington's West Riding Regiment. He lived in Wibsey, Bradford. He was killed on the Somme on 12/10/1916 and is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial and on the Bradford Roll of Honour.

It is believed that Charles Thomas Rogers (b. 1891) survived the Great War. He served with the Royal Artillery 25th Brigade and was a Quarter Master Sergeant. He might have been born in Sheffield.
