From the Manchester Evening News, 28th November 1917, page 2, column 8:

Second Lieutenant Clement Percy Wood East Lancashire Regiment, was killed on November 21st. Immediately on the outbreak of war Lieutenant Wood, who was then a teacher in the Albert Memorial School, Harpurhey, joined the 11th Rifle Brigade as a Private. He served in the ranks in France, being three times in hospital owing to shell explosion, wounds and trench fever. A month or two ago he was made an officer in the East Lancashire Regiment. He was 31 years of age and was the son of Mr Fred. Wood, for many years the headmaster of St George's School, Oldham Road. Lieutenant Wood was a scholar at Burgess Street and Cheetham Higher Grade Schools, and is an ex-teacher of the Burgess street School, making the fourth teacher from that school to be killed in action.
