Nick - cant offer full answer for the area that you need but in
Stoke-on-Trent the absent voters are recorded at the back of the electoral
registers for there last known address, It could be their parents or it
could be their own. It gives a good deal of information and in all the ones
I have needed it gives their Army number and regiment
It might be worth giving the local library a ring and ask them if they have
the electoral registers. If they do ask if it would be possible to see if
there is such a section - and if they don't, do they know where they are
Hope this helps

Subject: [CHS] Absent Voters List - 1918
Does anyone know the whereabouts (if one still exists) of the Absent
Voters List for 1918.
I am particularly interested in the Knutsford/Mobbeley area.
Any help is much appreciated and will be investigated with vigour!
My Great Uncle was called William TAYLOR and he was in the Leicestershire
Regiment - Unfortunately for me, there were about 10 surviving William
TAYLORs in the Regiment and I don't know which one he was. If I can find
him on the Voters List, it might give me a service number or Battalion or
something that helps.
