Yes indeed. Is the War Diary information still correct or is that 1917 as well?

I don't suppose anyone can pin down parents and age?

Fantastic Simon,

As Simon states in post #9 his mother was Annie. His father was probably William James Bevan. Annie Bevan states she had completed 18 years of marriage (reasonable to assume this was until the death of her husband and not to 1911 census date). There is a marriage of a William James Bevan to two alternative brides listed in the marriage index for 1891 Q3, Cheltenham, Gloucestershire District, one was Annie Poole so it might reasonably be assumed that they were the parents of the Henry William J. Bevan of interest. The 'J' initial possibly James. A William James Bevan died in the Gloucester, Gloucestershire District, aged 40 years, in 1909 Q4 (so if the marriage above is correct then 18 completed years of marriage stated in the 1911 census also fits).

Thanks Simon and Harry,

Can someone give me a link to the 1911 and 1901 Census?? I can't seem to locate them?
