Seeking a soldiers first name

Could anybody help me with this little mystery.

I have a complete list of casualties who died, having served with the Grimsby Chums, but there is just a single soldier who I have been unable to find out what his first name was.

The only details I have, are what are available on CWGC

ROBINSON, H

Rank: Lance Corporal

Service No: 40939

Date of Death: 02/05/1917

Regiment/Service: Lincolnshire Regiment 10th Bn.

Grave Reference: III. B. 33.

Cemetery: LILLE SOUTHERN CEMETERY

I have searched high and low for further details as to his name, but have been unable to track him down.

We have no age, and there is no 'additional information' on CWGC, so we also dont have where he is from or any relatives names.

Anybody got any ideas?

His service number, or should I say the service numbers close to his show men from Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Kent, Derbyshire, Styaffordshire, West Midlands, County Durham and Worcestershire all signed up at the same time. That will surely rule out the chance of him being from any specific area.

Am a bit flummoxed over this one

As usual, all help is really appreciated.

If you have any others with just an initial, just got the NA Medal Index Card Search, put in his surname and service number.

This will bring up his whole name. I have only had one in hundreds where this did not work.

Thanks each and everyone. Henry it is!!!!

Unfortunately my Ancestry subscription ended at the start of December so that option was no longer available to me.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

The NA site is a free job.

It brings a list up free of charge.

Ask at your local library, they may have free access to Ancestry. Lancashire Libraries do.
