Hi , He is my husbands mothers father. Henry and rose had 4 girls but because henry died in 1921 Lahore and rose died in 1927 Lahore, (found this on family search ) the girls were put in a convent, they were very young . Having looked at the marriage in 1914 henry was widowed, don't know who his first wife is? and don't know if there were any children from the the 1st wife?. regards eve

Seems all the records must be in India
Not seeing any records on consular records or army records to see who his family was
