In case you don’t have it, the 1911 Census entry for Harry’s family shows them living in Franklynn Road, Haywards Heath, Sussex.
Harry White senior was born 1870 and was a builder’s foreman, born Haywards Heath, wife Mary was born Crawley 1869, and their children, all born Haywards Heath, were Harry Walter, carpenter’s apprentice b1895, Frank Walwyn b1900, and Elsie May and Edith Rosa, both b1902.

Harry Walter died on 11th August 1915, aged 20, and is commemorated on Panel ref 125, Helles Memorial, Turkey (includes those fallen at Gallipoli), as Corporal Harry Walter White, son of Harry and Mary White of Franklynn Road, Haywards Heath, Sussex. He is also on the WW1 Roll of Honour at St Wilfred’s School, Haywards Heath. Not clear whether he was actually an ex-pupil of the school, or they were generally honouring their local war dead, and Harry was a local lad.
