Suffolk / Charles Henry Cutting born c1889 - looking for baptism
« 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)).

hi Mike - thanks for your reply.  i'm very much a notice with this sort of thing.  I had thought about a website but that costs and I am working on another couple of memorials and would like to put them on a blog/website as well.  my table is in excel and I simply copied & pasted it and thought I could update as and when I have more info.  however, I've just tried to upload an amended version and can't seem to remove my old data.  so, i'm going to see if my daughter's friend (who is taking IT at uni) can help me.  I'm now thinking blogspot wasn't the best medium to use :(

I will look into Wordpress and try to understand it. 

I like your idea too about make the names larger etc - I hadn't thought of that.  my font type is actually Frutiger in excel which is strange.  So lots more work for me to do this weekend!  Thanks for your help and suggestions.

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? 

if you click on the link below you can see it:

Blimey I don't know what to say - THANK YOU MaxD and Ady. I never expected such a detailed reply. 

I have an ancestry subscription - what's the difference in coverage on findmypast?
How did you discover he was attached to 11th Battalion?  I will try and read the diary tonight.
Last question: how do I search the Gazette if I don't know the date someone was commissioned?
Thank you both very much - Alison

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 :-\
