Remembered Today:

Leeds Absent Voters


Recommended Posts

I am trying to research 248 Pte Fred Wells of the West Yorkshire Regiment.

I have attempted to search and download the Leeds Absent Voters listing but I am being asked for a username and password.

Does anyone have the list please and could they do a check for me.

Many Thanks

Free search here: http://www.leeds.gov.uk/leisure/Pages/Absent-war-voters.aspx

But you might need to try variants such as frederick, F Freddie etc

EDIT Apparently there is a technical problem with the site at present judging by the text on the page.

A search on a Sid Franklin revealed the following:

Name: SID, FRANKLIN
Number: J/1246
Rank: PTE
Unit: ROYAL FUS
Reference: 5695C

The reference, as explained by the PDFs is that C is for Leeds Central. That sheet reveals:
METZ PLACE 5693/5696
