Reginald Henry WALKER
« on: Friday 18 September 09 19:47 BST (UK) »

trying to find someone  that is related to or would know who is related to Reginald Henry Walker. He died 13 apr 1917. He was married to Ethel Walker who lived at 13 Fyebridge st, norwich, norfolk, england.

Would like an obituary for her as well if possible to find out the names of their children, i know they had at least 1 child.

Reginald lived in Toronto canada at one point and was in world war 1 where he was killed in action.

Hi Slang, welcome to Rootschat.

I'm not related to your Walkers but we can have a go at looking for any children they had.  We have to be a bit careful because of Rootschat policy of not posting about people who might be alive.

There is a possible marriage between a Reginald Henry Walker and Ethel Willats in Yarmouth (4b 45) Mar qtr 1901.  Would this be your people?

A free search of the 1911 census, suggests that Reginald and Ethel were living in Strand, London with one son - Kenneth Willats Walker born 1895

hi,
thank you for sharing with me the name of their son.

from there i was able to see that a kenneth willats walker had filed for a divorce from phyllis pretoria walker.

can you look in the census and see if kenneth and phyllis had any children.

i don't know where the free census look-up is -are you on ancestry.com?

thank you

The 1911 census is available at www.1911census.co.uk  It is a pay to view site, but it is possible to do a free search which tells you some of info on the census.

Kenneth W Walker married Phyllis P Haylett in Mar qtr 1919 Norwich 4b 320

Looking on ancestry, it doesn't look as if Kenneth and Phyllis had any children.  Have you bought their divorce proceedings?  I know on my gt grandparents divorce papers it mentioned by name the children (and the other woman!)

Hello,
I believe that Reginald Henry Walker was my paternal grandfather.

May I ask why you are interested in him and his son, Kenneth Willats Walker please?

Best wishes,
Reginald's granddaughter.
