George Stanley Lockwood

Recommended Posts

blackburnian

I wonder if any member can assist with any information regarding my Great Uncle, George Stanley Lockwood. During my research into my Family Tree I have discovered that at the time of his marriage in December 1918 he was a serving soldier. His address is given as an annexe of a Hotel in Dover.  George was born in Marylebone on 25 August 1894 and his early life was spent as a Barnardo’s Boy including a spell in Canada.

 

I have no information on which Regiment or whether he fought in any theatre during WW1.

 

If someone could point me in the right direction or advise me further it would be greatly appreciated.

 

Kind regards

Blackburnian

Only had a quick look, but was he living in London in 1911, or at the start of the war? (there was a soldier of that name from Yorkshire in the Notts + Derby Reg't, but probably not your man?).

Thank you BillyH - no, this wouldn’t be him. I’m wondering whether with him going over to Canada as a Barnardo’s Boy, he joined the Canadian Army?

 

Many thanks for your reply

Thank you BillyH - I’ve just been corresponding with a cousin who emigrated to Canada and she thinks he might have been in the City of London Rifles, if that helps.

 

Thank you once again

Blackburnian.
