« on: Yesterday at 18:48 »
I'm trying to identify a school shown on the 1901 census for Bunham - looks like Hall or Hail House and it was probably a boarding school.

Does anyone know if there is a WW1 war memorial for St. John's Wood?

« on: Thursday 14 June 18 20:00 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone recommend a website that will help with medical abbreviations?

Am researching a number of soliders, one of which if L/Cpl. 3745 Frederick Thomas COX of the HAC who received a shrapnel wound to his face and arm.  He was admitted to 22 General Hospital but i can't read some of the text.  Thank you.

Lancashire / Manchester Industrial School, Ardwick Green
« on: Friday 01 June 18 19:39 BST (UK)  »
I'm researching a soldier who died in WW1.  His name was John Dundrow.  He was born in London in 1895 but on the 1911 census is listed as an inmate at the Manchester Industrial School and I was wondering why he was sent there?  His family remained in London and on his enlistment gave his home address as Mile End, London.

London and Middlesex / Claybury Mental Hospital, Redbridge
« on: Friday 01 June 18 19:12 BST (UK)  »
Would like to know more about Claybury Hospital. 

I have been researching a soldier who died in 1916 and believe two of his brothers are there on the 1939 Register - both described as 'incapacitated'.  Rather unusual I think to have 2 siblings there at the same time - both would have been in the 40s then.  Was it just a mental hospital or could both have been there as a result of injuries received during WW1?

« on: Thursday 12 April 18 21:56 BST (UK)  »
Charles Henry Cutting was born Timworth circa 1889 - looking for baptism entry as I'm trying to find out who his parents were? 

On the 1911c he's living with his wife in Ealing and on 1901 and 1891 he's with his uncle & aunt (Henry & Susannah Alderton (nee Hunt)).

Technical Help / Publishing my research
« on: Monday 05 March 18 21:10 GMT (UK)  »
For years I have been researching my family 'tree' but then decided to go further and research a local WW1 memorial.  I would now like to publish this and have created a 'blog'.  Have found this really difficult - can anyone recommend a website/idiots guide that can teach me how to amend/tidy up what I've created?

World War One / 1/4th Battalion, Royal Sussex Regt. in 1918
« on: Wednesday 14 February 18 20:34 GMT (UK)  »
I'm a bit confused and hoping someone can explain. 

I'm looking at the records for 2/Lt. Charles Thomas Squires, 4th Bn., Royal Sussex Regiment (Territorial), who died of wounds on 30 March 1918.  He is buried in France.  However, when I looked on the Long, Long Trail it looks like the Battalion didn't land in France until May 1918.  Please could someone put me straight.

*just found his MIC which looks like he was originally #2464 Hon. Artillery Company* still confused though :-\
