WW1 graves Tom Chatburn
« on: Thursday 08 February 18 14:33 GMT (UK) »
I am researching the graves of WW1 soldiers who died in the UK as a result of war wounds or related illness.

TOM CHATBURN had served with the Glos. Regt before being wounded on 14 Nov 1914 and medically discharged. He returned to Bradford where he died on 4 March 1921. His home address was 32 Park Gate, Bradford. His wife was Kate Elizabeth (nee Clark) from North Cave, East Yorkshire. In 1911 they had an infant son, Stanley.

I would welcome any info. which might help to lead me to Tom Chatburn's burial place.

Have looked in newspaper archive & CWGC, sadly nothing.

They may be prepared to waive fees if it is for a WW1 veteran.

Thanks, Josey.

I have been in touch with Bradford. Tom is not buried in any of the cemeteries under Council control. He and Kate were married in St Augustine's in 1905 and their parishioners are normally buried in Undercliffe, but no trace there either.
Tom appears to have been born in Idle, so will search further in that area. Also, son Stanley may (not certain) have married Louisa Park.

Any further thoughts would be most welcome.

The trees on Ancestry don't even name Stanley's parents at all  :'(
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
Archbell - anywhere, any date
Kendall - WRY
Milner - WRY
Appleyard - WRY

You're very welcome.  Have traced a number of relatives in previous CWGC appeals.  Its amazing how many people post information on ancestry trees and then admit they are a 4th or 5th cousin x 5 times removed which is to distant for CWGC   ::)

A couple of the Chatburn lines don't appear to have had any children.

The trees on Ancestry don't even name Stanley's parents at all  :'(
It may be that, like mine, the tree was uploaded a few years ago and more work has been done since.  There are a lot of proven names missing from my ancestry tree - you have spurred me on to upload an up-to-date tree  ;)
