I think he should have been a "Tent Salesman"  :)

No problem, and if anyone else wants a photograph of the St Giles headstones - just ask  :)

I, personally, think that the answer to that question is "NO".  AND the only way to make sure that your tree is correct is to do your own research.  OK, look at other trees, but do your own research to verify/discard that information.

Here's the photo.  I called into the Barracks but they don't have any information on the old Hospital, no patient records either.

I've taken a more general view of the CWGC graves, plus the church, if you want them.

Just found this - the hospital at Whittington Barracks.

Others buried at St Giles are from various areas of the country.

I imagine that perhaps what is now St Giles Hospice was the hospital in WW1.  BUT I'll go and ask the question - nosy parker that I am  :o

Amended - see my later post, with a photograph of the military hospital.

He appears to have a headstone at St Giles - a CWGC one.  I can go and have a look for you, and take a photograph, if you would like?  There are barracks still in Whittington, and I'll go and have a word with the museum people there, they're usually very helpful.

I live in Tamworth, so not very far away.
