World War One / Re: 1/19th Battalion London Regiment information?

Thanks for the replies and help guys. I hadn't found the second MIC :) I do also think the cards were written by the same person and that possibly the initials were mistakenly switched on them, as we are 100% positive that it is our George Herbert Hayward buried in Bailleul. Interesting and very confusing!!! Funny thing is our George never went by his given name and was always known as Herbert!

World War One / 1/19th Battalion London Regiment information?
« on: Friday 08 August 14 21:50 BST (UK)  »
For the centenary of WW1 I am researching my Grandmothers favourite Uncle; George Herbert Hayward of the 1/19th Battalion London Regiment who died 12th july 1917. He is buried at Bailleul Cemetery, France (info I found previously through the CWGC.) I have spent a thrilling afternoon reading the Battalion War Diaries downloaded from the National Archives which seems to suggest he may have died of wounds received in the trenches at Battlewood on 11th July. From scouring the internet this seems to be an area near Hill 60 at Zillebeke, Belgium. (I knew none of this this morning!) I've been looking for further info and have come across two different regimental numbers for him (or perhaps there were two George Herbert Haywards in the 19th London!) From his grave I have 613240 and from a medal Roll Index card I found 613050. This is my first dable into Military records, can anyone with more knowledge of the London Regiment help me find anything more or solve the two regimental number mystery? Thank you.

Crikey! This is what I love about the internet  :-* after an 'amazing' original flurry of information and incredible help over 7 years ago now this thread continues to give! Thank you so much Kelso for this new information it's wonderful to find out more about Edith. Did you read right through all the pages of Grimshaws Ontario? I posted a beautiful photo of Edith & Cecil as young children which I'd always wondered about. It has been amazing to find out so much. I've found a couple of people from both sides of this complicated story to help fill in some gaps but relish any further information, it is astonishing that the Grimshaws that stayed here in the UK never knew what mayhem Sidney caused!

Looks like Ellen 'Toyer' Currell died in December qtr of 1867 in Hatfield  :'( her babies were only 1 & 2 at the time, sad they ended up in the workhouse as there seems to be quite a lot of Currell families in the area.

Crikey Karenlee!! That's some detective work!!! Didn't expect all that this morning, now need to sit quietly and take it all in (not easy with a marauding three year old running around me!) You have been a star ;) thank you.

Thinking I'm digging dirt now! Just found James W H's first marriage in 1911 to Gertrude Price and that they had a baby Kathleen in 1913 who died in 1919  :'(
Not sure my Aunt is aware of that. She knew her dad was married before and that his wife died but not much else. Will let my mum tell her that! Just spoken to my mum she didn't know about Emily which is weird given that mum was born in 1940 and lived a stones throw from Watford. Clearly James Conrads death did have a terrible effect on the little family!!

Thanks again. I've had a look at the LDS site this afternoon and the Flood family history from James & Maria in Ashill, Norfolk is fairly well documented on there. I can tentatively take the family back to around 1730/40! There's even another Flood thread running on here. James William H Flood is my aged aunts father so I'm guessing she might know a little more of his movements from after his father dying in 1894. It's tricky as I'm relaying the info to her via my mother so have to wait for new info!!

Born with a pint in her hand I reckon!!! Or more probably a half pint back then for a lady.... The funny thing is, as I'm originally from Rickmansworth I often drank in the Halfway House as a 20 something & my very first boyfriend worked part time in the Estcourt Tavern when we were sixth formers. No clue they had family connections!!!!! Small world as they say.....
