Kent / Re: mental hospital in Sittingbourne area
« on: Yesterday at 14:32 »
Perhaps you could look at Oakwood Hospital Barming Heath near Maidstone, that was a  psychiatric hospital, it was founded as the County Lunatic Asylum. I had a relative with dementia who died there  in 1877.

World War One / Re: WW1 Service John/Charles/James Collins - all the same person?

If the different numbers are all in the same card, then they will all refer to the same man, numbers changed as men moved between units. I forget the date, it was not until after WW1 that numbers were standardised and they kept the same number throughout their service.

As I read your pdf.
The  first A1 as James is simply a duplicate of A, it is not unusual to find duplicates filed with the original records.

The second A1 with the name also as James is because, having discovered his  enlistment B in the Inniskilling Fusiliers as Charles was fraudulent, so he has been charged under his original name James.

The records relating to the Lincoln Regiment will still be held by the MOD as it cover 1920/21.

Others may have other ideas.

Illness could also make a man unfit to continue in the services.

A number of  marriages failed to reach the index, especially in the earlier years of registration. Covered in the book Comedy of Errors, or The Marriage Registers of England and Wales 1837-1889 by Michael Whitfield Foster.
