Son of the late William Ogilvie Cunningham and Christian Anne Cocks Cunningham according to CWGC and commemorated on Thiepval memorial. His medal card's on Ancestry. There's also a Cox family tree with him in it but unfortunately the page won't load for the moment....

PS there are two photos of him on the imperial war museum website ...
