Does anyone know how they found this family info on WWI dead?

I chanced upon this previously unknown relative recently. I was aware that his mother had 5 children, 4 living from the 1911 census, and his father had 12, 6 living from the 1911 census, but up till now I was only aware of the names of two of the daughters they had together. From the censuses I think he also has four half-siblings and two step-sisters, but they don't seem to be included in that obit.

Since I found this I looked at his war records but can't see any reference to his parents on them, although presumably the website got their names from some war records (but maybe not) . He was seemingly given up for adoption to a John H Osborn according to the 1901 census, so that bit's wrong (unless the census is badly transcribed, don't have access to it) but can't find him on the 1911 census or the missing sister on 1901 or 1911. His parents seem to have split about 1900, as in 1901 his father is living with his "housekeeper" later his wife. He seemed to be living with his father when he joined up.

I want to know because the records they used might give a clue to the missing sister. Haddon also seems to be an unusual name, as I've looked at all the Haddons on BMD born in the area in that 30 year period and can't see any possible candidates. 

Thanks for any help.

On the bottom left of the article there is a button which says Contact Owner- why not do that and see if they can tell you where they got the info from?

It doesn't work. Someone else can try it, but I don't think it works.

Often you will find that information on these websites has been submitted by the public.  It is really poor form not to provide a reference.

HIS ARMY EFFECTS WERE LEFT TO HIS FOSTER FATHER, JAMES OSBORNE

The effects register actually names him as Joseph H. OSBORNE.

I am not really sure what you are looking for in regards to his family.  The three sisters are on the GRO indexes - Rose Hannah, 1892, Mary Jane, 1894, and Dorothy May, 1901.

Looks Dorothy May died Dec.qtr.1921 Hull.   She's transcribed as 'Hadden' in 1911.
