Greeting’s & Welcome…… Michelle Your way forward ? …….. Post a message on this site’s ' Trying to find ' board. But be careful as to what information you put in the message. Notice in the Local / National Papers. Possibility Tammy is on the Electoral Rolls. But you have to be prepared for the other person Not wishing to be found. Have you got the Surname right = ROLAND ? There is a Birth registration for Leicester Central July. ~ August ~ September. Quarter. 1989. In the name of :~ Tammy Elizabeth ROWLAND. MIKE.

Paul, Have had a look at your names again as it's been a while. I have Wards that are from Newark originally and one daughter married a Reuben Wand. Reuben and Mary can be found in Newark for a number of years but they married at St Mary's in Radford which is just out of the city centre, Elaine PS Many of the Wands were butchers by trade

Sheila Report 18 Jun 2007 15:28

Mike Do you know anything about the absent voters list for 1918? Is it in the records office? I'm told this may be a way of finding a service number and unit for my grandfather. I have photos of him in the uniform of the Cameronians but he does not appear on the medal cards for them and I'm wondering if later on he was transferred. His name was EDWIN PHILLIPS and his wife EMMA EDITH PHILLIPS would have been living in Bruin Street at the time. As always, would appreciate your learned advice. Sheila PS We went all the way to Twickenham...and we lost. Never mind, roll on next season.

Greeting’s Again Sheila. Yes funny you should ask that about absent voters I had a similar request only last week from an other site. If you can leave it with me I can but ask at the Records Office this week & see what develops Then get back to you The biggest hurdle to overcome is to find out in which Ward Bruin Street came under. Was Edwin b 1885. the Son of Edwin & Emily ? Father & Son Iron Molders Cameronians ( Scottish Rifles ) Had two regiments..... 26th. & 90th. Which one was Edwin enlisted in ? If Edwin married whist in the army then his service number rank & Reg. would be on the marriage certifcate.... Yes…….. They got to Twickenham. ………. But they did not get off the Bus !!!!!! :0((((( MIKE. xxx
