There seem to be a number of admissions to and discharges from Greenwich Union. However, any that mention a husband/father give his name as John? Family seems to match otherwise?

Here is one...

Admitted to Greenwich Union 13 Apr 1908

Sarah Lewis 34 R.C. Married 11 Roan St Husband John in prison.
Annie 6
Kate 4
James 2
Stephen 9/12 Children of above.

Other records have various combos of mother and children.

Anyway, food for thought.

Something seems a bit odd to me. As MaureenNY asked, I too wonder why the C?

The effects record has William Commerford with 2 Ms and as L/Cpl
The medals record has William Commerford with 2 Ms and as Pte
The CWGC record has C Comerford with 1 M and as L/Cpl

All records have the same service number.

Something just seems odd? I would expect all records with the same service number to match exactly.


Edited to add: the effects record indicates William died in France so one would expect him to have been buried there. The C Comerford appears to have been buried in Germany.

The image of the marriage record is available on familysearch. It doesn't give a lot of info but does show the witnesses. They may or may not be related but might be worth tracing.


Hello and a very warm welcome to RootsChat  :).

Gadget is still very active on RootsChat but I'm not sure which time zone he/she lives in so it may be a bit of a wait for a reply.


There might be some helpful info in your other threads so I thought I would post links to them here.

From info in the original post, I think dorothyl is looking for the Minnie who married Richard Edgeley. She would need to obtain their marriage certificate to ascertain if the father's name matches these particular findings.

Great finds philipsearching!

Minnie appears to have named one of her children the same as the very unusual 1907 W.

We are not permitted to do 1911 census lookups but Wilmot Johnson should be easy for dorothyl to find herself.

How odd  ???.

With no dates on that tombstone, I also wonder if that means the 2 might still be alive?

And Albert Dale is on the list of burials for Barrie Union in 2 different websites....

I wonder whether he might also still be alive and it is just his name on a tombstone with no dates yet? Given his birth year this is surely possible?
