No Problem ArgyllGran. I think actually he probably had just celebrated (if you can do such a think on the battlefield) his twentieth birthday.

Yes, rootsgatherer -
I mean that Harry William Collins who died in 1918 is not the right one.

Sorry for any confusion.

EDIT:
Just ignore me! I've just noticed that you said his parents were Charles & Martha, so Harry William is correct.

The family seem to have been in Brentford are all along, and chiswick comes under Brentford reg district:

GURNEY Martha Brentford 3a 99

Perhaps ArgyllGran - but he may have been born at the end on 1898? And it could be a co-incidence that the Henry George Collins and Harry both have parents named Charles and Martha.


Births Sep 1904 Collins Nellie Louisa Brentford 3a 156

I don't see a Mary Collins born in Brentford in 1907, but there's this one in 1901. Is this her??

Births Mar 1901 (>99%)
Collins Mary Ann Brentford 3a 76

but where is she on the censuses, whenever she was born?

EDIT:
No that's not the right one - she's with her parents in 1911 - a different family.

Karen Marie -
You say they had 8 children.

According to 1911 census, they had 10, all living as at 1911.

Lizzie, Harry, Frank, Jessie, John, Nellie, Charles, on censuses - and 3 others.
Mary and Thomas you've mentioned.
One other?

I don't see any Collins/Gurney births from 1911 onwards.

Perhaps this is Harry's birth - which would mean he's not the one whose death Rootsgatherer posted above:

Would think that 1917 marriage was a bit early for Frank as he was born in 1902
