Warwickshire / Albert Phillips. Cornish Regiment
« on: Monday 03 August 15 21:25 BST (UK)  »
my sister today received the death certificate of our great grandmother....... Sarah Ann Phillips passed away 15 December 1901 age 33. wife of Albert Phillips, Corporal 2nd Battalion Cornish Regiment. Died from probable heart failure. declared by Grace Hines sister.... we were surprised that her death was not declared by Albert, and wonder if he may have been away with his regiment at the time.          We have been told he was a 'career' soldier but this is the first evidence we have that he was in the army. Albert Phillips was born ABT.1874 in Deritend. Birmingham. Sarah and Albert lived in Allcock Street at the time of her death. 
We are curious to know if the battalion was overseas in 1901. Thanks.

Warwickshire Lookup Requests / Stephen Hainsworth again!
« on: Wednesday 22 July 15 19:25 BST (UK)  »
We are trying to find the parents of our great,great,great grandfather Stephen Hainsworth (1787) who married Elizabeth Guy (1787) 24 December 1810 at Aston Juxta. we have posted before about the family. Two generations of the family have used the surnames Hainsworth, Ainsworth or Ensor!  we have found possible parents in Isaac and Hannah Hainsworth, they had lots of children who might be siblings, but no Stephen. Just wondering if the name change is a factor this time as to why we can't find Stephen
we would be grateful for any help, thanks.

three generations of my fathers family lived in the back to back houses in Heneage street Birmingham .. Dad has vivid memories of life there, and at age 93 remembers lots of names. one of them is a Mr Talbot their landlord. I would like to try and find out a little about this man. I.e did he own much of the property on the street. How do I go about finding out, or is it something lost in time. Thank you.

Very grateful for the help yesterday re grandads W. W. 1 service.........I hope I can ask for help just once more re Royal Warwickshire Regiment. Three of us have tried, and failed, to find our great uncles army number. The problem I'm sure is the surname!  Joseph James Smith. Born 10 February 1895. Address Heneage Street,  Birmingham. His parents were Eliza and John Henry   Smith.  Maybe a new set of eyes might help. Thanks

Some years ago my mom told me that grandad had been in the R.A.F   during w.w.1. Recently my sister was looking for family service numbers and came across one for Benjamin Charles Ainsworth. Army no.11314 arma sch R.A.F and home address fawdry Street Birmingham. I'm interested to know if this is associated with the Warwickshire regiment..I've been told grandad was at the Somme,  he was injured and on crutches when he married nan early
1917. I've also heard he may have been at Passchendael.
