Hi Mitcham

You can also add my 2 great uncles who died in the first world war.  These were Robert James of 27 Queens Road. He died in 1917 and his name is on the Tynescot Memorial in Belgium. His brother Samuel James who lived in Queens Road also died during this war but we have been unable to trace him.

To clear up one post - Ocean Draper was married to Alfred James and they lived at 35 Queens Road.

Regards Waynus
