Recommended Posts

Hi! This is my first post. While reseaching my wife's family, we came across a memorial plaque in the church in Hulcott Buckinghamshire. On the plaque is her father's brother Frederick Curtis, Reg number 45095, number changed to 5373986 after re-enlistment. His milatary grave is in the graveyard of the church. The news paper account of the funeral stated that Frederick was the oldest surviving son of Charles and Mary Jane Curtis,this indicates to me that the eldest son Arthur Henry Curtis born 1889 is dead.I can find no record of his death, but on the plaque in the church there are two inscription's for a Harry Curtis of the Bucks Territorials who died of wounds 1917, the other Harry Curtis Died of wounds recieved in France March 1917. Are they one of the same the two Harry's, and could Harry be a nickname for Arthur Henry. Any help would be appreciated. Alan

Thanks for your information I can now eliminate the ones you gave me from my search. Alan
