Hoping someone may be able to help do a look up on Ancestry when they next go into it.

I think the men below were 2 brothers and may be 2 cousins, but not to sure from Family history.

If anyone could help out and email me if they managed to find something, I would appreciate it.

S Lofty is the most mysterious as he does not appear on the village war memorial after perhaps DOW in 1919 ?????

Many thanks,

Alan

Hi

Have found service records for Herber Henry Lofty and S. Lofty, whose name is Sidney by the way. If you PM me your e mail address I'll get the stuff together and send it to you.
