Armed Forces / John Lane ww1 hospital
« on: Friday 12 March 21 11:07 GMT (UK)  »
Hi all,
          I have a mystery im trying to solve and  need some help. John Lane was born in Wellington Somerset around 1893 oldest son to Walter and Anna lane . I have a copy of a newspaper cutting dated 23/1/1918 in which his mother was asking for his brother not to be taken away from the family business ,(butcher). It states that John was taken for military service and has broken down. And was in a military hospital in Dundee.  Ive not bern able to find any trace of him after.  I dont kniw if he stayed up there or came home or when he died, hoping a new set of eyes might have better luck or know where to look, thanks 😊

Travelling People / West country Hollands

Hi. I'm trying to sort out what happened to my Holland family james Holland and Angelina/caroline Orchard had 11 children that ican find.from 1896 to 1915. In the 1911 cencus that stated they had 10 children 8 living 2 deceased so I think I am missing at least 1 child. They traveled around the Somerset Devon area .  I'd like to try and find out who they married what happened to them all. 
Betsy 1896
Rachel 1898 (not on 1911 census)
Henry 1899
Britannia 1900-1921
Thomas 1902 (husbands grandfather)
James 1904
joseph 1907
John 1908
 William 1910
Edward 1914
Micheal 1915.
Any help filling in the gaps would be fab

 i know my g grandmother Matilda Gertrude Gleadell/Gleadle was in the Gainsborough work house for the 1891 census (Gertrude Gleadhill age 10). and was married and living  in Halifax by the 1901 census (Gertrude Webster age 20). i would love to know when she went in how long she stayed in there and  when and how she left and ended up in halifax. i wondered if anyone had access to the workhouse records to see what it says (if anything). Her Mum Emma Died 1877 and she was never married.
                     many thanks
