Hello Sandra, Ashtone & AllanUK,

First can I say a huge THANKS to you all for doing this for me. I donít think I would have ever found all the information you have passed on. I have a lot to learn about military records!

AllanUK  Wow! His Medical Admissions record. The information of when and where he would have received his wounds and the fact youíve practically pinpointed the date when George enlisted. Iím amazed! What knowledge! Thank you.

Ashtone   I have George in the 1891 census with his parents and two siblings living in Trafalgar Street, St Mary Newington, London. His father Stephen is shown as a Labourer. Iíve still to find any of them in 1901 though after todays discovery about Georges enlistment date, he could be anywhere in the UK!
Thank you for explaining the reference codes.

Sandra  Iím going to be doing a lot of reading. Thank you for all the useful links

So very grateful for all the help
A

Hmm...not seeing them in the 1891 census.  ???

ADDED: Nevermind. I see them now. The family are transcribed as "While" (not White).

Who were the witnesses on the 1905 marriage of George and Margaret/Maggie ?

The sister, Emily (fruiterer and greengrocer on the 1911 census) appears to marry Harold Spinney in 1911 and passed away 1970 Wandsworth Greater London.  Would you happen to have the marriage certificate to see who the witnesses were at that marriage ?
