Remembered Today:

John Walker can you help

Recommended Posts

Researching the Memorials of Mildenhall Parish I am still looking for three men one being John Walker who I believe is on the 1901 census records is an orphan aged 9 Living with Alfred and Eliza Sparrow of Beck Row Road Mildenhall Suffolk. Then on the 1911 census a lodger aged 19 living with Edward and Susanna Gee of Mildenhall his birthplace shown as Islington London which I could not find on BMD index. Those that I have listed are what I have left from a list of nearly 400 Walker's with a forename of John or with other names including John and those with just the Initial J. Have not found him in any local newspapaers as yet, if anyone on the forum can rule out any on this list that they know not to be my man hopefully I could be left with one name that could possibly be the John Walker I am looking for. I just hope that they are not all ruled out so I have to start again.

I have added links to the service numbers to CWGC for these men if that will be of help to anyone in finding out where these men may be listed on a Memorial somewhere.
