Gunner R.A. Posted 28 October , 2013 Share Posted 28 October , 2013 I have a soldier named Ernest Lyne from my local memorial in West Yorkshire, who I believe is also commemorated on the Grove Road Methodist War Memorial in Northampton. LYNE, Ernest, b. Northampton , e. Keighley, r. Northampton, 11705, Sergeant, Killed in action, France & Flanders, 10/07/16,. East Yorkshire Regiment, 7th Battalion. I have done the usual checks, NRGW, De Ruvigny, MIC and W0363 etc (couldnt find his service record). What I dont have is his parents names or his date of birth, and hence I dont have any census returns for him. I am hoping that since he obviously had close ties to Northampton he would be mentioned in one of the local newspapers of the time. If any Pals are living in or researching any soldiers or memorials in Northampton I would gratefully appreciate any help or advice regarding Northampton newspapers etc, Kind regards, Pete.
