Rose, Good point about age so Lily May was the 'other' woman.
I have from the manchester Regiment all his records but the helpers on there website did say that details of where and to whom the pension was paid would now be at Kew Records Offices, and my cousin believes we have to visit in person to get copies of there records.
regards
Alan

They should be on Ancestry but I'm not sure I see them. I looked on the national archives site too but the only thing showing is his medal card.

Could be the records were destroyed in WW2.

I have his service records from some kind people at the Manchester Regiment Website. They did say that all pension information would only now be available from the Kew records offices.
So I guess some travelling will have to be done, probably next year in company with several cousins who are also on the case.
regards

Rose, I have army records via the Manchesters Forum, and several people there gave me lots on his army records but did say the regiment does'nt hold the pension details, as they are now held at Kew Records Office. I guess that means a visit to check them out.
Manchester library have said that the address 32 Randolph St Levenshulme, which he gave as his wife's address , only had a Mary Ellen Ward and a Percy Maull Ward on the two Electoral Registers for 1920. I guess I'm going to have to check many more Electoral registers to solve this one!

Alan,

The pension, WW1 service records, and medal rolls are all free to view on Ancestry right now.

Not seeing anything apart from his medal records.
