World War One / Mogford Census, BMD
« on: Sunday 27 May 07 14:22 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if someone would be kind enough to help me re this gentleman.
Rifleman Edward Frederick Mogford, # S-13182, 7th Rifle Brigade who died on 4-8-16. I cannot find him in the Census or BMD. He was aged 25 and the son of Edwin and Jenny Mogford of 43 Lancaster Road, East Ham.
He was unfortunately killed in an accident whilst undergoing Lewis Gun instruction and his record does not survive.

Armed Forces / 1901 Census
« on: Saturday 31 March 07 16:52 BST (UK)  »
Wonder if all you census guru's could help out here. I am having difficulty (nothing new there with the census) tracking a Sidney Charles Reeve who was killed in action at Hooge on 31-7-15 (8th Rifle Brigade, naturally)
Commonwealth War Graves Commission gives him as 20 years of age, son of Thomas H. and Emily Reeve of 47 Corsehill St, Streatham, London, but I am damned if I can find him.

Wonder if anyone can help me re the Census with a gentleman that has popped up in The Times P.O.W. lists.

Rifleman Ernest H. Troxon # B/203442, 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade

He appears in The Times POW List of 23/12/16 and it states Barking. However being completely useless at the Census I was wondering if some kind sole would help me here to enable a few loose ends to be tied up.

I wonder if someone could help me trying to find this gentleman on the census, not my strongest point, I cannot find him.
He attested in The Rifle Brigade on the 8th June 1892 on a short service attestation having previously served in the same Regiment but was discharged by purchase.
His NOK is given as Father George who was a Baker and lived in Dunbeath, Caithness, Scotland. Donald's age was given as 23 years and 7 months on attestment and he enlisted in Bristol. He was discharged time expired on 7/6/04.
