Kent Lookup Requests / Completed Re: Marriage lookup - James Thompson Shorne Kent
« on: Monday 08 September 14 23:49 BST (UK)  »

Please could anyone look-up to see if James Thompson is registered as being remarried to Ann after the death of his first wife Jane in Dec 1880.  James is living with his mother in law in Shorne, Kent - 1881 census, but then in 1891 still in Shorne, he has a new wife named Ann, but I can't seem to find a record for a marriage for them.  James died 1898 and Ann died 1907 both buried in St Peter and St Paul Church yard, Shorne.

Any help much appreciated

Thanks Frank.  I take it this means I won't find any military info for this man then?
Kind regards

What an excellent website, thank you BearKat for bringing this to my attention, although hasn't helped with James and Ann.  I know it will come in handy for many others. Do you know if there are any other sites like this for other areas?

World War One / Another Uniform question
« on: Saturday 30 August 14 12:21 BST (UK)  »
Hi all
Can anyone tell me if this is a WWI or WWII Uniform.  I have been led to believe this is a photo of my husbands Grandfather Albert Joseph Bennett born 1908, so not old enough to fight in WWI, but I just feel this photo looks too old to be WWII.

Any help please

Thanks for all your replies guys.  Yes I had seen that medal card, but still can't be sure if that is the right man. I'll just have to keep digging.



World War One / WW1 Uniform
« on: Wednesday 06 August 14 12:04 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone tell me if you can tell what regiment a soldier is in, just by looking at their uniform?  I've tried to find his Army records but to no avail.  His name is Charles George Carpenter 1888-1962, he was born in Romford Essex, but lived in Dartford Kent 1891-1911, and his occupation in 1911 was a Motor Omnibus and Lorry Driver.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated!
