Henry James Burbridge - Anglo Boer War
« on: Wednesday 23 January 19 08:26 GMT (UK) »
I have a relative born in 1866 in Edvin Loach in Herefordshire.  In 1891 he was serving as a Footman for Wentworth Woodhouse in Yorkshire and he died of TB in London in 1907.  I can find no record of him on any 1901 census.  I did find some Royal Household records of someone serving in the Silver Pantry but the Royal Archives do not feel that this is our man as the dates don't tie up.

I have however found another Henry James Burbridge in the Anglo Boar War - 69 (Sussex) Company 7 Battalion Imperial Yeomanry service number 21232.  As the War covers the missing period, this could be him but I can't find any records on searches on Find my past or Ancestry.  Can these records be acquired from anywhere?

Hi
Findmypast appears to have two mentions for a possible soldier you are looking for,  with that number 21232.
One for Henry James Burbridge  (Boer War) and one for Henry Burbidge  (middle name James in record)
Ufortunately it looks like it is nt your Henry with wrong dob and place of birth.

Best wishes

Thank you both.  Looks like I have to draw a line under this one and accept I can't find him during that 17 year period

Do you have his death certificate? If so does it give a place of death (though probably a hospital)
He is hard to pin down in 1901 and variable spellings of his surname do nt help. Any idea if he got married?
Ancestry has London electoral rolls that he might be on but hard to know if its him.
Sometimes if people were in institutions around that time they are only enumerated with their initials.
Hope you solve the mystery :)

Yes I have his death certificate which gives St Georges Hospital, Belgrave as where he died.  The informant was his brother and it gives the profession as Hotel Valet at 84 Jermyn St, St James.  which I believe became Claridges.  I have checked the census for his brothers address and the hotel in 1901 and he is not listed at those addresses as far as I can see. To the best of the information I can find I don't think he married but as he's gone from a tiny village in Herefordshire to the big house in Yorkshire and then to London, I guess he could of been anywhere

Don't think it was Claridges which is in Brook Street.  The Cavendish was/is at 81 Jermyn St.

In 1901 84 Jermyn Street was actually the Galatis Hotel but I think there was something on the internet search that they combined some smalled hotels
