CROWLY (Crowley)

As I thought, but looked anyway, nothing coming up for both of them. This is probably due to the fact that they would have been approx 58 in WW1 and as we know that is far to old to fight in the War at that time.

How about their Sons???

Sorry

Think we lost each other on the other thread so here goes again------can you please look for Claude Fred Clare born 1895 in London and his brother Harold Jack Clare born 1898 in Dalston London. They were the sons of Jesse and Beatrice Clare. Thanks.

Hi Shannette

I have found the service records for a Claude Charles Clare - he was born approx 1880 and was married to an Emily Gledhill and they had children called Katherine, Milly, Emily and Ernest. They lived in Clerkenwell London.

I have also found this for your Claude Frederick Clare, however the Navy Records are not online so you cannot view them, apart from this one on the National Archives website.

Description Name Clare, Claude Frederick
Official Number: L4892
Place of Birth: Islington, London

Date 11 April 1894
Catalogue reference ADM 188/997
Dept Records of the Admiralty, Naval Forces, Royal Marines, Coastguard, and related bodies
Series Admiralty: Royal Navy Registers of Seamen's Services
Piece 4501-5000

Have no clue what these details contain.

Nothing coming up for Harold Jack Clare

Lesley.

Posted this on your previous site so not sure whether or not you picked it up and will try again.
Please can you find details of my grandfather's war record - Evan Thomas James born 1892/93 in Treharris, Rhondda. Mother was Catherine and father Evan.

Thanks for your help.

There is nothing in the Service or Pension records that correlate to the details you have given.

There are 41 Evan James' in the Medal Rolls - however there are only two Evan T James'

Evan T James South Wales Borderers, Royal Welsh Fusiliers 15442, 38201

Evan T James Welsh Regiment 75613

I can't narrow this down I'm afraid.

Hi Lesley

I wonder if you could check out my Great Grandad please?

His name was Hamish Cassells and he was from Lanarkshire (father Robert Cassells) and he was in the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) and served in France.
My mum has his five medals, we reckon most of them are campaign medals but one, we think, is a Meritorious Service Medal.

Many thanks.

Sandra

Thanks for the look up for Evan Thomas James. I know his brother who died in 1917 was in the Welsh Regiment, so I assume Evan was as well.

Thanks

There is a service records for a William Davidson Cairns but I have looked into this and he finished the war in 1919 so this cannot possibly be your relative.
