[Note: The Birth, Death, Marriage and Census records show the surname BICKERSTAFF has been spelled BIGGERSTAFF by different Registrars and Census Enumerators. This has made it difficult to trace family members. WILLIAM's military records have the surname spelled BICKERSTAFF, although his birth record shows BIGGERSTAFF. I have used the spelling shown on the individual records I found, but in 'army-speak' he is forever known as BICKERSTAFF.]

WILLIAM BICKERSTAFF, Corporal 42354 Machine Gun Corps (Infantry),
