Thomas was born 3 February 1901 in Longford town.

Pte Lyons died in the Southern General Hospital, Portsmouth. He had just turned 18 less than two weeks prior, therefore it is highly unlikely that he had served in the Great War. He died in the 5th Southern General Hospital in Portsmouth, from pneumonia, possibly related to the Spanish Flu pandemic

Thomas's brother Michael also served in the war. His sister, Margaret McNally of 6 St. Bridget's Terrace, was listed as his guardian. 

Parents Names: Son of Patrick Lyons and Bridget (née Murphy), Naud's Yard, Longford
