William Walrond (politician)
Waleran was the second but eldest surviving son of William Walrond, 1st Baron Waleran, by Elizabeth Katharine Pitman, daughter of James Samuel Pitman, of Dunchideock House, Devon, High Sheriff of Devon in 1856.
Walrond married Charlotte Margaret Lothian Coats, daughter of George Coats, later Baron Glentanar, in 1904. They had two sons, of whom William Walrond eventually succeeded in the barony of Waleran. He died, aged 39, of wounds received in action on 2 November 1915 while serving as a Lieutenant with the Royal Army Service Corps during the First World War. He is buried in the churchyard at All Saints' Chapel Bradfield, the chapel to Bradfield House, at the time the seat of the Walrond family. Walrond is commemorated on Panel 8 of the Parliamentary War Memorial in Westminster Hall, one of 22 MPs that died during World War I to be named on that memorial. Walrond is one of 19 MPs who fell in the war who are commemorated by heraldic shields in the Commons Chamber. A further act of commemoration came with the unveiling in 1932 of a manuscript-style illuminated book of remembrance for the House of Commons, which includes a short biographical account of the life and death of Walrond.
