CWGC wish to make contact with any family members of Sergeant Alfred Goble - Welsh Regiment - 16487

Alfred Goble, Sergeant-Instructor, 16487, Welsh Regiment. Alfred was born at Worthing, Sussex, the son of John and Mary Ann Goble. He was an experienced old soldier, and had taken part in the Retreat to Kandahar in 1880, under Lord Roberts. He married Susan Douglas in 1885, and moved to Carmarthen many years before the Great War, as instructor for the Royal Garrison Artillery. As soon as war broke out, Alfred was anxious to do his bit once again, and after a period at the Army Remount Depot at Carmarthen, he joined the 15th Battalion, Welsh Regiment, the Carmarthen Pals battalion, on 21 February 1915, which was then at Rhyl. Alfred didnít go to France with the battalion, but remained at Kinmel Park as an Instructor with the 61st Training Battalion. His health deteriorated under the strains however, and he died in Hospital on Thursday 31 May 1917. His body was transported by rail to Carmarthen, where Alfred was buried at St. Davidís Churchyard. He was 64 years old, and left a widow, four daughters, and four sons, two of whom were serving with the Army.

England / Looking for information or whereabouts of Alfred Shutt..............
« on: Wednesday 06 June 18 12:09 BST (UK)  »

Doing a little research for a friend who has a curiosity but is not fully into genealogy.

Alfred Shutt married Alice Maude Strawbridge - Barrow In Furness - December 1900  - 8 e 1436 -  On the off chance anyone is going to Barrow In Furness records office and could view the marriage record, it would be great if they could confirm the parents of Alfred and his age (if the age or parents are listed)

Alice was born 1877 appears on the 1911 census with a number of children but no husband Alfred.  Alice also appears on electoral roll with her mother in 1921 Kelly's Directory of Birmingham and again a record in 1930.
We know that a son William Edward Shutt is transcribed with the wrong birth date on his death record and we know he spent time for various offences at HMP. Gloucester.  He had spent most of his life in a Birmingham Children's Home, so we suspect that the father may have passed away or moved on.

We have lots of other information but Alfred Shutt is an enigma at the moment. Any information on him would be appreciated.


amended marriage to Dec 1900
