Astra Report 4 Mar 2013 18:23

William appears to have enlisted in 1916 and gives his address as 6 Burfield Street Leicester. He is not married.
He is not at that address in 1911.

Many thanks. Looks like Ethel and William are found but Arthur S still seems elusive. Seems to be a Polmer family name.
Thanks Will

Thanks again to everyone. Arthur Sydney was born to Thomas Parker and Violette Fryer. Thomas died 1906 and Violette in 1908. All 11 of Arthur's siblings have been traced, many to family members or friends....remarkable. If anyone is on Ancestry the tree is visible at BedfordHaywood family tree_2012-01-09
Cheers Will :-)
