William Harling b.1880 Skerton Lancaster
« on: Monday 16 October 17 13:08 BST (UK) »
I have details of the above up to 1901, then he disappears ?,   his brother Thomas b 1882 moved from Lancaster to Duckinfield Cheshire working on the railways and there is a near match of a death in 1947 William Harling age 66 in nearby Hyde, there is a possible match in Chelsea pensioners maybe he enlisted, cannot find him in 1911 C. but if he was in the military he could be anywhere
                                                   Any thoughts, bodger

If he was in the military in 1911 he should be listed somewhere. 

Have you looked for him on the 1939 register.

rosie99,  Just another plus point, in the 1960s my wife to be introduced me to a Hilda who was her fathers 1st cousin, it ties in that she was the Hilda that you found, i had been looking for the link without success. Thanks bodger

It is always good when people you have met in your youth 'fit into place' isn't it.  :)
