Hi Dave

 

I can't believe I've only just stumbled across this terrific project of yours.  If you're still open for business, could I ask you to look up the following for me on your list, please?

 

Private Wilson Bayliss, no. 203814, 1st/7th Worcesters, KIA 3 June 1917, shown in the Graphic on 7 July 1917.

 

Captain John Nason RFC, KIA 26 December 1916, shown in the Graphic on 6 January 1917.

 

Private George Russell, no. 1045, 1st Gloucesters, KIA 7 November 1914, shown in the Graphic 10 July 1915.

 

Private Sidney Vallender, no. 44901, 15th Royal Irish Rifles, KIA 17 April 1918, shown in the Graphic on 4 May 1918.

 

Private Jeremiah ('Jerry') Whitmore, no. 15531, 11th Borders, KIA 18 November 1916, shown in the Graphic on 3 February 1917.

 

All were from Corse, Staunton or Hartpury parishes.

 

Many thanks

 

Dave

Good morning from New Zealand!

 

I am hoping you may be able to help or at least point me in the right direction - I am researching Harry Alfred Taylor/Alfred Harry Taylor - born Alfred but know forever after as Harry - born Cheltenham 1879 to Samuel and Mary Taylor.   By 1917 he is living in Clarence St, Kidderminster and occupation on his first child's brith cerficate of the same year is Royal Engineers - Sapper (Carpenter).    And that is as much as I can find of him - I have not been able to tack down a regt number.

 

With many thanks.

Kelly
