I feel I must answers you. The reason why probate in London Probate. Stephen will was all tied up with his Father Will, which was a will trust. Probate had been granted to Stephen Uncle back on 22 July 1867 and eventually by an order of the Court dated 20 July 1916 the Public Trustee was appointed to be sole trustee of the said Will.
We have many lawyers in the family even today.

I could go on but it will NOT help me find William Norman Ashton after the date I asked for.

My Friend as sent from England other information from Stockport newspapers
Soldier Families From Hazel Grove. 

Sir on reading your issue of last week my attention was drawn to the photo of Mr Sykes and his patriotic family. It is indeed one which any father can be justly proud about and I hasten to congratulate the worthy father on the possession of so many gallant and worthy sons and I wish them every luck and a safe return - to their father and mother. But while giving the father in question every praise I must on be half  of our own village, Bullock Smithy, draw attention to your remark, in which you said you knew of no one in the district with such a patriotic record. We have in Hazel Grove a father who can easily beat even such a splendid  record. The name of this gentleman  in question is Mr Ashton of Station road Hazel Grove. He has six sons serving in the army. Their names and regiments are as follows, Percy R.A.M.C in the Dardanelles, Stephen Royal  Marines in Serbia, Clarence Sherwood Foresters (Notts and Derby) in France, Cuthbert Northumberland Fusiliers stationed at Morpeth, Norman  Lancashire Fusiliers Cavendish Park Barrow in Furness and Reginald with the  Anzacs  somewhere in the Dardanelles.
Mr Ashton the father  of these gallant sons is a prominent and well respected member of the Hazel Grove Conservatives Club and needless to say the members consider  it a very high honour to have a member with such  a proud record in their midst.

Stockport  7 Jan 1917

A Soldiers family...A good deal of interest has been aroused in the village by the fact that Mr Ashton of Station road  has no less than six sons serving their King and Country. Percy who was in Canada when war was declared, came over with the Canadians and is now in the Dardanelles, Stephen , Royal Marines was on HM ship The Iron Duke, but has been sent somewhere in charge of a big gun , where has not transpired, Cuthbert is with the Northumberland Fusiliers stationed at Morpeth, Norman is in the 4th Battalion of the Lancashire Fusiliers in camp at Barrow in Furness, Reginald in with the Australians and Clarence who has been wounded in the leg but is now better and in the fighting line is with the Derby and Notts Regiment

I hope this will be an end to the matter. Sadly I didn't need your kind of help willyam

I feel the same way Heywood, but I think I best just press on trying to find William Norman and take no notice. Hopefully I will find him one day. Thank you all for your help.

I do not know what you are implying, but I am at the present in France researching

the 9th Royal Fusiliers and do not have his number to hand. I can assure you that

there is nothing in his record that can help find him after 1920.

On Grand father Percy's army records which I have the originals, he only puts some of the family,
there was not room for them all. He doesn't put any of his sisters either.

Yes I have seen that death, but how would I prove it was mine through his death certificate.

He has given his date of birthday in 1939  6 Dec 1896.

Yes, thank you Tall Al. On the 1939 gives his birthday as 6 Dec 1896, that is the wrong birthday

 for my William Norman (born 25 Oct 1895) 

I have kept him on a list I have though, to check out just in case all else fails.

Thanks again
