Hello there,
I am still searching for my Great Uncle name of Percival Moore. Percival was killed in the great war between 1914 -1918.His estimated year of birth was 1877 in London.
He had a brother called Jack Moore (A London Fishmonger) .born London. Dates unknown.
He also had a sister Alice Moore born London. Date unknown and another brother - Charles Moore - who was a regular Soldier.(born 1879 and died 1960). Any ideas and leads will be very gratefully appreciated.
Thank you in advance, Noreen Moore

Hello Noreen, do you know the names of the parents?

'Still' searching suggests a previous post..................

IF he died as a result of service in WW1, his death record will be on the CWGC site

Is this the Charles (1879 - 1960) as it has some of the correct siblings in the family, (but Percy does not fit in with the suggested birth date and military record found)

If Percival born 1877 and Charles born 1879, they should be together on the 1881 census. Have you found them?
Thanks

If Percival was born 1877 he'd be a little old to be killed in WW1.

MarieCeleste Report 13 Apr 2013 12:28

These names ring a bell, was he previously found as Percy?

However, have searched and can't find a thread.

pm from Noreen:

"His father's name was Charles William Moore and he was a Farrier/Blacksmith.
Kind regards,
Noreen Moore"

(Have explained about replying on here)

On the 1891 that patchem posted above the father Charles is a farrier. Given the siblings names I'm sure that must be the right family and that there's an error about Percy/Percival's birth year.

Noreen, could you confirm if the 1891 census posted above is the right family (just use the "add your reply" box below).

I can't find him on any census with the family you mention.

Hi Marie Celeste,

I think you are right - patchem is very much close or possibly the exact family. It seems I have been given my great grandmothers name , which I was also desperately searching. I think Patchem has done an excellent result.
Huge thanks all round, I am so grateful

Which one of the children are you descended from? Will try to find some further records.

Message from Noreen:

Charles W Moore 1879 Apr-May-Jun 1960 York Yorkshire East Riding

I have my info re my grandfather Charles William Moore, (brother of Percival Moore) who was born 1879 in London... married Rose Gertrude Mc Donald who was ten years younger than him, in 1913. He was a regular soldier and in 1916 he was posted to Wales to a place called Conway leading up to end of WW1 in 1918.

Then C W Moore and Wife Rose moved to 20 Hungate for the birth of my father Philip on 1 st October 1918.
