Wow!!! And wow again!!!

I go away for the weekend and come back to find 6 more pages on this thread! Great work everyone.

It will take me a bit of time to digest everything but with a quick run through I do agree that Harry and Dorothy remained in England. I didn't know how far I would be allowed to go with posting about the 1939 Register but it certainly appeared that they were in Orpington.

And I still think the Harry/Henry who came to Canada about 1904/5 was possibly a Home Child. He served in the Canadian forces in WW1 and ended up with an amputated lower leg. I would suspect that he met Dorothy while in England and she followed him to Canada.

hello friends

what can I say? I take the proverbial hat off to you and extend my gratitude for the impressive effort you have made on our behalf, if it was not for your expertise we would still be wasting precious time looking in the wrong direction. 

I certainly was barking up the wrong tree, I have more than sufficient information to enable me to eventually complete that chapter of the family tree to the extent that I can mark this request as complete.

all enjoy the well earned ZZZZZZZ
