Arthur Trevor Morris was born in Loughor, Wales, on 28 September 1888. He was the son of William and Mary Ann Morris. It is not known when he immigrated to Canada.
A farmer, Morris enlisted in the 45th Battalion in Dauphin, Manitoba, on 13 March 1915. His brother, William Pridmore Morris, enlisted in the same unit three months later. After training in Canada, the two of them embarked for England with their unit on SS Lapland, leaving Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 1 April 1916. Upon arrival in England, the 45th Battalion provided reinforcements to Canadian units in the field, so the Morris brothers were transferred to the 31st Battalion. They joined the unit in the field on 2 June 1916. Twelve days later, Arthur Morris was hospitalized after being wounded in both legs during the Battle of Mount Sorrel. He returned to duty six months later. Morris died at No. 6 Casualty Clearing Station in France on 16 April 1917, from wounds received during the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
Arthur Trevor Morris is buried in Barlin Communal Cemetery Extension, in France.
