Hi Tracy I think I have the answer. If you write the names Daniel and David with a pen in a scrawl like some did on the census, the names look the same. The n can be a v and the e joined to l would be the d in David- hope that makes sense. I dicovered that when I copied your information on a piece of paper, then tried to read it without glasses. Regards Bob.

Bob, still can't find him in 1901. I'm not convinced the one I gave you from 1881 is right. I keep going back and forth between different Harrys lol Do you want a Harry Ernest instead? :)

Hi Tracy Here we go! Harry Richard Lambert b1877 married Bertha Hillier date not know but first child born abt 1906- my mother was third b1910 that year on the birth cert Bertha was living in Newington,London. But that doesn't mean a thing as she used to moved houses every2=3 months. He joined the Sussex Regiment for the1914=1918 war but was killed in action in France. His fathers name was Daniel,although having seen your last info could be David. Honestly Tracy, there are so many stories about I coiuld go on and on.

Hi Tracy Sorry didnt come back but had to pop off to work. No I havnt got any details from any census. Even 1881,if you can find anything would be useful. I know he joined the Sussex Regiment 1914 and I believe you had to live in Sussex to do that. But I think,as the story goes, he moved down there for that reason. Could you try Daniel Lambert b1844 perhaps the 1851 onwards. Sorry to be a pain,and thanks again for your time. Regards Bob

Sorry John, I can only do household lookups for the censuses. You need an Electoral Role lookup. I'm not sure where you get these from. Probably the local library.
