Thomas Simpson

This is one of the names that is just too common for me to easily locate our man.

The CWGC gave 79 results for Thomas Simpson, using the 'other information' section and entries in UK Soldiers Died in the Great War 1914-1919 I disqualified all men who were born and lived in places other than Liverpool.

This gave me a much smaller list of possibilities:

Pte Thomas William Simpson 291412, 18th Bn The Welsh Regiment. Born Liverpool, died 24 March 1918 KIA in France & Flanders.

Lance Corporal Thomas Henry Simpson 52061, 1st Bn The Lancashire Fusiliers. Son of Charles and Sarah Simpson of 1 Woodlands Road, Aigburth, Liverpool.

unless there is some information in the church records to help identify the correct Thomas Simpson I'm a bit stuck.
