HMS King Edward VII
« on: Sunday 12 January 14 13:02 GMT (UK) »
Hi to all

I have just come across an old postcard of men loading ammunition on board HMS King Edward VII in an old family photo album.
I am looking for the crew list / records for people who served on board from 1905 to 1916 when she sank.
The surnames i am intrested in is Fairhead or Strotton. I know one of my family Thomas William Strotton died on HMS Bulwark in 1914.
Forces war records do not list HMS King Edward VII.

has anybody got any ideas as to where i need to start looking? Any help or pointer will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Steve

H Steve,

There are not usualy crew lts for RN ships.

Thomas William's Naval records can be down loaded for a nominal charge from the National Archives, there are also records for a John STROTTON born Chichester.

There are a lot of records for the name FAIRHEAD but you need to have more information, first names, place or date of birth,  to narrow them down.
