Rob George Posted 22 June , 2019 Share Posted 22 June , 2019 (edited) Hello everyone - a bit of a mystery for you to ponder . . . As relatives of the following, who served throughout WW1 – we are trying to discover why he has no mention on the CWGC site and where he may have been buried? · Stanley William Lapthorne – 1st Garrison Battalion, South Staffordshire Regiment - (Rgtl. No. – 47225). I think this was formed 1917, Lichfield and went to India. · Died 57 General Hospital, Marseilles – 17 Apr 1919. (CoD – Influenza and Septicaemia). · Originally, in Gloucestershire Regiment (Rgtl. No. – 9788). · Received 1914 – 18 Star (so must be an early enlistment), British and Victory Medals. No Service Record – found. We do have the record of ‘Soldier’s Effects’, his Medal Award Rolls and death certificate. Stanley’s earlier information: Born 10 Aug 1892, Bristol. 1901 Census – ‘pauper child’ in Bath Workhouse. 1911 Census – lived at Bathampton, Somerset with mother 'Under Gardener'. Do you think you could lend any guidance as to where we could go to ensure this soldier is remembered? Rob George Edited 27 June , 2019 by Rob George Mistake on 1911 Census info.
