I have not come across Jesse Merrick,he is not on the Wolverhampton roll of honour as he was not born here. I have at least another five memorials to research to my knowledge within Wolverhampton,if I come across him i will let you know. Just to say I still haven't found a memorial commemorating the loss of my two G Uncles and they were both from Wolverhampton.

I am trying to research the names on my village war memorial (sibsey near Boston in Lincolnshire) for our village magazine. Would someone mind doing a SDGW look up on the following names for me. Sorry to ask for so many and please dont feel obliged to do all of them. I hope this is not abusing the system.

PTE. A. BLACKBOURN

TPR. A. C. CLIFTON

SGT. H. ELEY

PTE. S. GROOBY

PTE. H. HUTTON

PTE. G. LILLEY

PTE. C. LOWE

SPR. R. LOWE*

GNR. G. A. LAXTON

BDR. J. A. LAXTON*

PTE. P. ROBINSON

PTE. H. RUSHTON

PTE.W. P. WILKINSON*

*Possibly not casualties.

I would also be interested to hear of any other casualties with Sibsey connections as I believe this list is not complete.

Many thanks in advance,

Jonathan

Thats brilliant Doug - many thanks!!

If you can be bothered could you tell me the details of the other Sibsey men. It may be that we can have them added to the memorial.

I think all the soldiers you identified were correct but could you check to see if you can find C. Lowe with the following extra information (I should have thought to give it to you before):

Private Charles Lowe, 9th Bn. Leicestershire Regiment. KIA 14/07/1916 aged 29. Service number 14705. He was the son of Mrs. M. A. Palmer of London Road, Frampton, Boston, Lincs.

Also do you have any idea what RFN stands for - you wrote it next to the name of Horace Eley.

Many thanks,

Jonathan :D

RFN is the abbreviation for Rifleman, the KRRC rank for a Private.

Hope this helps.

Many thanks again Doug. Your efforts are most appreciated. That lot will keep me bussy on the internet for a bit. If you have a spare moment would you mind also giving me the names of the other six Sibsey men who were residing in Sibsey. There is no rush and I hate to keep asking (this should be the last time). Please dont feel obliged to answer as I feel Im starting to take advantage.

Many thanks,

Jonathan :unsure:

Hi Doug

I'm new here and trying to research some family members

Sjt Richard Airey MGC 17384 dod 17/10/1916 previously with Seaforth Highlanders

Pte Albert E Airey Border Regt 242231 dod 18/3/1918

Pte Hodgson Sarginson Border Regt 14794 dod 5/7/1916

Wheeler Edward Sarginson Royal Army Service corps TS/7770 dod 8/3/1919

I'm not sure about the last one as he is buried in his home town. I'm very interested in how Richard came to be in a highland regt so any enlistment/residence info would be excellent.

Thanks very much in advance

Jon
