CWGC appeal for relatives to locate the next of kin for soldiers who fell in war. Could you be connected to any of these individuals ?

If you are related to one of the above casualties and can provide us with documentation, please contact  https://www.cwgc.org/  -  Commemorations Team.

Harold Robinson - 3 Aug 1916 - 7061 - 20th battalion - died of wounds - France and Flanders.

Harold was the son of William Robinson and Lucy Allen Johnson.
Don't think Harold was married - father named on list of soldiers effects.

Elizabeth Robinson   50 Sister to head.

Brother Cecil Robinson born 1894 passed away March 1977 Flyde Blackpool - also had WW1 Service record. Address given was Allington lodge. Ellesmere Park. Eccles. Lancashire - (that is where the family appear to be in 1911)

Brother Bertram Robinson born 1896 - also served WW1 - 2nd/6 Manchester Regiment - Regimental Number 50069
There is a marriage Salford Lancashire -  1924 - Bertram Robinson to Doris Warmisham - 8d 35
3 daughters born to this union - 1925 - 1928 - 1933

There were also sisters of Harold, obviously they have passed on and they off spring might not be close enough relations for CWGC.
