Appeal over WWI composer

I should be obliged if you would allow me to appeal to your readers for information on W Hamilton Burns - a Belfast man - who set to music Samuel K Cowan's poem The Charge of the Ulster Division at Thiepval. This was published in sheet music form in 1916 by the publishing firm Burns of Belfast.

Any information would be welcome and could be sent to my postal address, 71 Bluebell Road, Dublin 12, or to
