Hi all,

Hitting a brick wall with my great grandfather, William James England and would appreciate a fresh pair of eyes!
Here's what I know so far:
Born approx April 1889 - Army discharge papers have him discharged on 19/07/1918 at the age of 29 years and 4 months.

1911 census in Bishop Monkton (aged 21) states he was born in Somersetshire although unsure of this as this census shows he was working on a farm with my gt grandmother in North Yorkshire.

1916 - Married gt grandmother Lily Banks -  Father listed as Thomas England  (a coal miner)

9th Feb 1924 - died in Ripon North Yorkshire aged 34.

What I really need is a birth record - i have searched through hundreds with no luck.  I have no leads whatsoever for a mothers name and only know his father is named Thomas England ( coal miner) as i purchased William and Lilys marriage certificate.

ANY help really would be much appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,
Lena

Armed Forces / Can't find Grandads Army Records Robert Coleman
« on: Sunday 27 September 20 21:12 BST (UK)  »
Hi All,

I have been searching for my Grandfathers army records but no matter where i search it doesn't show anything - not even a match for his name!

His name is Robert Coleman - could also be known as Robert Peter Coleman, apparently he added the Peter in himself but think this was post army!
I know he was born 3rd Nov 1919 in Knaresborough North Yorkshire and joined the army young - my mum seems to think he lied about his age to get into the army which would suggest his DOB would be different on his records.

I'm also told he received a letter from King Olav of Norway - suggesting he perhaps served there?

The only other thing i have to go on is this photograph of him.  I am fully aware that all service records post WW1 are held solely by the MOD but all i would like to know is what regiment he served in at least.
I'm also told he was a boxer in the army too and went by the name of 'Chick Coleman'

any help is much appreciated!
