Private Samuel was a soldier in the London Regiment according to his great niece, Alison Corfield.
She says he fought in the Battle of the Somme, which began in July 1916.
"He was killed on September 30 1916. He died of wounds and is buried at St. Pierre cemetery in Amiens. There is a family story that when he joined up he said: 'I'm going now and I don't expect to be back.'"
Alison Corfield says she is delighted by the parish council's decision to correct her great uncle's memorial name.
Mrs. Corfield, from Shrewsbury, says her family had tried to hide the extra "s" by covering it with mud.
She wrote to councillors arguing that a change would be appropriate as the 100th anniversary of the start of hostilities approached.

We have also spoken to the local vicar and she has said that once the correction has been made there will be a re-dedication and we will be inviting the family to attend.
