Atom 12!

Can't believe how richly you've rewarded me. I knew none of this but it is absolutely spot on.

They ARE the children of William and Jane. Their ages are correct because I know when they were born. The address is correct  - I have a picture of the bungalow in Moreton.There is still one niece left alive from the family and she will be delighted (in a sense) to know more about them. She is the daughter of the only boy to survive - James Allison who, she tells me, was wounded in the head, and this may be why he wasn't killed like his two brothers. His is the picture I've posted as part of this thread - the one of ranks of soldiers in  rather raggle taggle uniforms in the street.

Thank you very very much indeed! Are there further records on them that I can look up now you've found out which regiments they served in?

Ken
Cuthbert, Roberts (Sefton. Bootle, Liverpool, St. Pancras), Burbage, Dodd.
Allison (Scotland, pre 1861) (Liverpool post 1860),
Gerrat, Davidson, Caffey, McCourt, McDill, Ireland +Scotland. Ballard, Mayman,
 Pletts, Shield, Pattison, Patteson, Johnston(Cumberland).
Thorp(e), Jacobson, Bond, Parry, Gaskill (Liverpool, Denmark), Moar, Hanaeus,Ilett
Simmons, Pritchard, Cherrington (Shropshire)

Hi Ken

You might be able to find out more about what the Regiment was up from the War Diaries which you can either view on a visit to the National Archives at Kew or possibly order online for a fee.  However, it is unusual for an individual soldier to be mentioned in the Diary.  ???

Here's a link to the Liverpool Scottish:

Finding it hard to get an MIC or anything for James.  Do you have anymore information on him.  Like a date/year of birth/where from/any middle names!  as there are a lot of James Allison soldiers on the MICs and amongst pension records.  Do you feel he was in the Liverpool Regiment for sure?  :(
