The Ernest that you are looking at shows:

Birth Town - Stroud

Lived - Gloucester

For the Ernest that died in France 1916 a tree on Ancestry has his father as

Edward Charles Mills born 1875 Horsley

Mother, Annie Marie Pegler born 1864

Ernest Mills who died they have him born 1897 Horsley Gloucestershire. although his name is given as Ernest John Mills. So he does not tally with your Ernest born 1889

If you don't have access to Ancestry you can view these trees by going to you have to register but then you can contact the tree owner
