William was born a son of Abraham Bradwell in South Wingfield. Clearly taking residence in Huthwaite, where he returned home wounded from battle, to be finally buried inside the Huthwaite Cemetery. This along with age could suggest Private Bradwell held some family ties here, although none recorded from his less obvious choice of regiment through enlisting at Nottingham.
