Huntroyde House RAMC

Described in a research article about Huntroyde House, Frederick is said to be in the St John's Ambulance Brigade. However. he got married to an Annetta Barrett whilst at Huntroyde and the wedding article says he is an orderley in the RAMC and that he joined early in the war.

I have searched every variation of name in the WW1 records but can't find him. It could be that the actual record was amongst those lost during WWII.

Can anyone shed any light as to the relationship between the St Johns and the RAMC ? I know that this Frederick was not a popular member of the family and have also discovered that some of his brothers and relations were killed during the war.

Could Frederick have been a pacifist or C.O ? was service in the St John's or the RAMC an acceptable alternative?

Frederick was born in Bradford, Yorkshire about 1890, and was entered in the census returns upto 1911, as Frederick Ellison. Kitchen was his mother's (Elizabeth Anne) name and his father was Frederick Ellison. Where the Harris comes from is still part of the ongoing research.

Many thanks for the opportunity to post this.
