Pte. Joseph Brearley
« on: Tuesday 23 November 21 14:37 GMT (UK) »
I have been looking at Ancestry.com for information about WW1 soldier Pte. Joseph Brearley 26610 Border Regiment, born 20 October 1897 in Manchester. In 1911 Census he was a schoolboy living at 29 Goulden Street, Oldham Rd, Manchester with his father John (age 39, a Corporation Waterman) and his mother Annie (age 38) and siblings Fred 18 (a Carter), Ernest 15 (a gray cloth picker), Albert 11, Charlotte 5 & John 2.
Joseph Brearley married Edith Chorlton on 27 May 1916, and they had six children Edith (born Oct 1916), Gladys (b. Apr 1918), May (b. Apr. 1921), Stanley Brearley (b. April 1923 in Manchester), Ivy (b. Jan 1925) & Mona (b. Oct 1926).
Joseph died on 27 May 1980 and is buried at Chorlton-Cum-Hardy Cemetery in Manchester.

Do you mean the information on Fold3?

He had a gunshot wound to the right arm and was awarded a conditional 20% disability on 25 March 1920.
He was discharged 13 May 1919. It doesn't say where he got the GSW. The only information is about his disability appointments.
He was to get 8 shillings his wife 4/8 and it says he has 2 children.
Address 38 Realler? Street, Oldham Road

Did you find him in 1939? He is at 89 Northumberland Road, Stretford with daughter Gladys and 2 redacted entries. Plus Elizabeth A who must be the wife of one of his sons and her son Kenneth born 1929.

His wife is visiting with Polly Chorlton age 64

Added
His mother's maiden name was Case daughter of Thomas Case when she married John Brearley (father Walter -engineer) 16 April 1892 at Harpurhey Christ Church Lancashire
