Have you found his father in 1911 - maybe he was with him or any siblings?

Yes all the other siblings accounted for in 1911. His father Edward was living in Yatton near Bristol with his daughter Gertrude .

hello Emelton
I have been trying to find the army  record you mention for James and wonder if you can point me to the correct site. i cant find a death so he may have survived. his sister died many  years latter in Winscombe so i think its the correct person.
thanks again.

Thank you . I had put to much info in. His service number found him . I  notice he married  a Ada Jane  ? address Bettett Sandy Lane but I dont know in what town.
The most likely one i think is Ada jane Kirkham . Marriage 1918 q3 at Denbighhshire Wales.
But I still cant find their deaths. But at least progress .

There is a birth in 1919 for a Dorothy Wheeler mmn Kirkham. She appears in 1939 in Prestatyn with an Ada J Anderson and Albert Anderson. However I cannot find an Anderson/Wheeler marriage.

The town mentioned in the Army papers is Dyserth.
