Julienne

Hi Julienne,
I have a query re your information about James. In all the census, marriage and birth information, i can't see Hollinwood being a factor. In his baptism record and following records, he is at the other side of town.
This might affect searches for his service record if Hollinwood is used as his birthplace.
You might have his birth certificate and he may well have been born there of course but I just wanted to confirm the information.

Thanks
Heywood

Knowing his (Schofield's) numbers makes all the difference!  As you have Ancestry, here's the link to his pension record which confirms his service from 1903 to 1918.  Parents as you posted.
 Discharged 29 Aug 1918.  His medal card is also easily found.

That's great maxD.
It was just the Hollinwood reference which seemed odd.

In my case, I earlier queried the James H Schofield because although his papers mentioned Hollinwood, the service history didn't add up.  The one with the service numbers quoted doesn't mention Hollinwood at all!

Julienne - As to the Whittaker man.  Sorry but I can't find a service record (Fred or Alfred) that can be attributed to the man you describe.

I was wondering about Hollinwood as all other records have no mention of it either - it is the other side of town and I don't want you to have the wrong birth details, Julienne.
(Unless of course he was born there and then moved  :))

Regrettably it still doesn't turn up a service record identifiable to this Fred Whittaker!

maxD

Presumably the original poster is content with Schofield's record?
