Hi

Can you be more specific about the type of information you are asking for?

Are you looking for his ancestry or his WW1 service or his life after the war - or all 3?

Can you also include any information you already have to avoid duplication and to help us in any search

Still at home 1911 if this is he at Ercall.  No Samuel Barnetts in the POW list as far as I can see.

A Samuel Barnett, born 26 October 1890 was living in Drayton, Shropshire in 1939 with his wife, Nellie.  He was an assistant to his wife who was a grocer and sub post mistress.  Don't know if this was the right person but a Samuel Barnet married Nellie Dodd in 1920 in Market Drayton.  In 1911, Nellie Dodd was an assistant in a post office in Child Ercall.

The International Committee of the Red Cross database of POWs of the Great War is at http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Search/#/3/2/107/0/British%20and%20Commonwealth/Military/barnett%20samuel (this is the link to the search for Barnett Samuel).  No record there, I have tried other spellings without success.

As far as service records are concerned:

I can find no records in the name of Samuel Barnett that can be identified as the Shopshire man (you may know that some 70% of Great War service records were destroyed in a bombing raid in the Second War).

There are some 44 Samuel Barnett medal cards but these records have no personal information so cannot, without a service number and/or regiment, be tied to your man.

Are there any other possible clues in the family, photographs, family stories with dates, memorabilia etc that might help?
