Private William John Fissi was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born in 1883, in St. Saviour, the son of Italian-born confectioner Fermo and his wife Ellen Fissi (née Neal), of London. At the time of the 1911 census, the younger Fissi was working as a bath attendant at the Union Workhouse on Woodbridge Road. He had formerly served in the army.

Fissi died on 27 September 1914, at Troyon during the Battle of the Aisne, while serving with the 2nd Battalion, The Royal Sussex Regiment. He had arrived on the Western Front only a few weeks before his death.[1]

He has no known grave and is commemorated by the La Ferte-sous-Jouarre Memorial.
