Hi
Thanks.
From what i can work out henry died young too.

What i cant work out is
Ernest george clark 1911 was born in Bedwelty and john major clarke 1916 in Harptree Somerset

Did George move with them? And why did they move? And when?

In 1911 Henry is with Granny Franks in Ubley, Clutton district

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X7RJ-GQJ

George Clarke's address when he joined up in 1915 was West Harptree, occupation coal miner. He may have moved for work

Not sure about Henry dying young. There's a Henry E Franks the right age who dies in Somerset in 1961

The Bristol and Somerset coalfields started dying out about the turn of the century.

Many of the miners (like my grandfather and his brother) then sought work in the South Wales coalfields - especially around the Bedwellty Registration District - where my mum was born in 1931!
