     He died on 2 October 1943 in a local hospital at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, at age 73.9

     Asquith and District Honour Roll:
     "Rivett, William".
Other comments:
     William Rivett was born in England and married Jane Allcott in the second quarter of 1901. In 1913, he came to Saskatchewan. According to the passenger list showing his arrival, he intended to go to Duck lake. At some point these plans changed because he ended up in the Asquith district.
     William and Jane had 5 children, with the last, George being born in Saskatchewan. Jane and her children followed William to Saskatoon arriving aboard the "Dominion" at Portland, Maine in January 1914.
     William falsified his age, subtracting 5 years, to avoid being rejected as a recruit when he enlisted in 1916. During his service, while at Hill 60 near Ypres, Belgium, he received a shell wound to his left temple which fractured a bone, leaving a scar and deformity. It also impacted his vision and hearing. These injuries resulted in his discharge as medically unfit due to wounds. Following rehabilitation and discharge, he worked as a "public servant" at the Federal Building in Saskatoon, where he was a janitor. He retired from this position shortly before his death.11

Canadian Military Service - WWI

     William Rivett of Asquith P.O. began military service on 15 April 1916 at the age of 45 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, joining the 96th Battalion, Canadian Highlanders. Note that he claimed to be 40 in order to pass the age limit. He was a married labourer with no previous military experience. He was described as being 5' 7 3/4" with a sallow complexion, blue eyes and dark brown hair. On his Attestation (enlistment) papers, he listed his next-of-kin as his wife, Jane Elizabeth Rivett of Asquith P.O.. He was assigned regimental number 204741.12,2
     On 29 September 1916 at Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, he embarked with his unit on the "S.S. Laconia," arriving in England 6 Oct 1916. Two days later he was transferred to the 92nd Battalion. On 1 Apr 1917 he was transferred to the 5th Reserve Battalion.12
     On 25 April 1917 he was transferred to the 15th Battalion and joined his unit on 17 May 1917. On 15 Aug 1917, during the Battle of Passchendaele at Hill 60, he received a shell wound to his face/head in the area of his left temple which affected his vision and hearing. He also was diagnosed with myalgia due to exposure and severe weather conditions. He was hospitalized at Etaples and then Bristol and Epsom in England, and discharged from the convalescent hospital on 26 Oct 1917.12
     On 1 April 1919 at Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada, he was promoted to Lance Corporal.12 L/Cpl. William Rivett ended military service as part of general demobilization on 15 July 1919 at Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, classified as medically unfit due to his wounds for future military service. He had served in Belgium, France, England and Canada.

Census Data

     William Rivett appeared on the1881 British Census of at Leicester, at Leicestershire, England, in the household of his parents, George Rivett and Eliza Rivett.3
     William Rivett and Jane Rivett appeared on the 1916 Census of Canadian Prairie Provinces, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, enumerated 5 June 1916, enumerated as a labourer. Their children Elizabeth, William, Albert, Annie and George were listed as living with them.8
     William Rivett immigrated in 1913 to Asquith, RM of Loganton, Saskatchewan, Canada, from England. Note that the passenger list showing his arrival in Portland, Maine shows that he intended to go to Duck Lake. Something changed his mind. Note that the 1916 census showed his year of immigration as 1912. It also shows that he was now in Saskatoon, so between the time of his enlistment in mid-April and the census on June 1, he must have moved the family to Saskatoon for "the duration."2,8 He was included on a passenger manifest for the "Cymric" dated 16 May 1913 arriving at Portland, Maine, USA. His final destination was Duck Lake, Saskatchewan. He was a draper from Leicester.13
     The following obituary appeared Saskatoon StarPhoenix published in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan 13 October 1943:
