Explore the follow site found by an internet search and see if they can help. Presumably you have a name?

http://www.bfsa.org.uk/ (british fire services association)

contact details of Staffordshire Fire and Rescue are here
http://www.staffordshirefire.gov.uk/500.asp

Unless the fireman is listed on the CWGC site as being killed in service, you may have to prove that you are next of kin or that he is deceased before confidential information is released.
