British Armed Forces Overseas in 1921 Census
« on: Wednesday 02 March 22 10:11 GMT (UK) »
I am checking in again to the Common Room for I have received excellent help there in the past.
Looking in vain for a sergeant, I happened on the attached but cannot discover how to proceed from there. Can anyone help? Thanks, Toby.

I can see the one you are talking about on Find My Past but it is just a list of records with no indication as to whether they are viewable.

Have you tried searching the 1921 Census using the name in which you are interested?

It may be that you will only be able to view these records at Kew.

England: Devon, London, New Zealand
Holdway: Wiltshire
Hooper: Bristol, Somerset
Knowling: Devon, London
Southcott: Devon, China
Strong: Wiltshire

Hi,

National Archives ref RG15, the following is the connection

https://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/results/r?_q=Ireland&_ser=RG%2015&id=C13340

Think the item you quote is the 6th item down, if you click on this it opens another page on the right of which it give connection FindMyPast search for free but have to pay for actual document as it is part of 1921 Census.

Thanks for the help. Seems that one goes round in circles and that I will only get answers once the 1826 Irish census becomes avaiable. T

Hi

Who are you actually looking for? Where in Ireland do you think they are in 1921.

Is he a sergeant in the army or is the surname sergeant.

Sgt. Raymond Lonnon spent a couple of years in the occupying army in Ireland & Germany. That is all I know. Many thanks  Spendlove if you are able to add to this. T

When and where was he born?  Without that information it will be difficult to assist you.  Do you know who his parents were?  Did he have siblings?

Had a quick look, but will need more info.

When and where was he born, is Raymond his only Christian name?

Where have you obtained the info that he was a Sergeant, you say occupying forces in Ireland and Germany, so assume we are looking for service 1914-1918 war.

Are we talking about the Raymond Lonnon born 1900 Newport, Monmouthshire?

Is so, he is on the 1921 census in Bristol - surname has been transcribed as 'Louman' instead of Lonnon.  Not in the armed forces.
