Merchant Navy...
« on: Wednesday 26 April 06 18:33 BST (UK) »
I found out today that my great grandfathers brother was in the merchant navy. I don't have any other details apart from the following: His name was William Cousins born 1890 in Crowfield, Suffolk. He married an Ellen Eliza Watling on the 9th of September 1911 in Crowfield and they had a child named Francis born 1911, Crowfield. A relation said that he had heard his ship was torpedoed. But whether this is true or not I don't know. Does anyone know if there is anywhere online I can search?
Cousins (all variations) from Crowfield/Stonham Aspal/Elmsett/Pettaugh. Chapman from Worlingworth/Hornham/Dennington. Westrup from Bungay/Hales/Haddiscoe Sawyer from Woodbridge/Ipswich/Martlesham/Aldeburgh. Bruty from Clare

Dear Joanne,

Try www.mowbars.plus.com/

A friend has just passed this website onto me, so I have not had a good look at it yet, but I think it is all about the Merchant Navy.

Good Luck with your search.

Patsy

Thanks for that Patsy, sadly there were no Cousins listed on there.
