World War One / PoW location
« on: Tuesday 26 December 23 20:30 GMT (UK)  »
According to the grand guerre website, Rifleman 608520 Frederick George Webb, London Rent was captured at a place called Fius - but I can't find this on a map.  Does anyone know if this is a place?

It also mentioned a town called (Laz) Valenciennes but I think that's the location of a hospital he was treated in (which I have found on a map).

Essex / Monumental Inscriptiion
« on: Saturday 23 December 23 18:23 GMT (UK)  »
I have been trying to help someone looking for a burial at my local cemetery (via Find-A-Grave) but unfortunately the burial records for St. Marys, Runwell were destroyed in 1953. 

Apparently Essex Family History Society have transcribed some of the headstones.  Does anyone have a copy of the CD and could check the details for me:

Horace Britton Laverack, died 30 October 1952

Thank you. :)

Can anyone confirm the street on the attached death certificate? The closest match I can see is Swinnerton but I'm not completely sure.  Thank you.

At the time of the 1911 census there is a small school in Trewartha Park Weston-super-Mare.  Does anyone know its name?

Europe / French records
« on: Monday 18 September 23 20:21 BST (UK)  »
Trying to find someone born in Grenoble, France around 1863.  I've tried Ancestry and Familysearch.  Any other suggestions? 

All I have is her name, approx. year of birth and place of birth.

World War One / Cyclist Corps - H. Timmins
« on: Sunday 03 September 23 17:00 BST (UK)  »
I'm researching another Roll of Honour and all I have to go on is: 

H. Timmins, Cyclist Corps

I'm a bit confused by 'cyclist' corps - would this have been part of another Regiment?

I cannot find a match on the CWGC site or on Ancestry.  Any thoughts/suggestions appreciated.

World War Two / Tug boats and their casualties
« on: Thursday 24 August 23 20:51 BST (UK)  »
I'm researching a memorial and have quite a few men who worked on tug boats in WW2.  Most of them are not on the CWGC. 

Are there any sites where I can search for these men?  For instance, I have the death of a man in Dec 1941 and would like to know what caused his death.

Kent / Kent Address in 1939
« on: Thursday 24 August 23 20:48 BST (UK)  »
I've found someone on the 1939 Register with the address: 155 Hut, Swale, Kent - a bit strange but there are lots of 'huts' - were these temporary houses?
