all i know of him is he was married to my greatgrandmother' on one of there childrens birth certificates his occupation was sergeant cheshire regiment and bricklayer this is dated april 1917 i have been researching my family history , iwould love to know were he served would love some info

I took some advice i recieved yesterday and contacted labour corps .com he was one of the original members of the LC he was initially in the 21st battalion cheshire regiment which on the formation of the labour corps,became 63 company i also received attacment which gives some idea were he served,I am so grateful for all the info you guys have given, kew seems to be my next step but geograpy and finances prevent this so any ideas on how i can find out more about him ive spent months on bmd sites dont know were he was born or when he died all i know he got married in manchester 1913

have you got his marriage certificate? this should tell you his fathers name and residence at time of marriage, which could help you find him in the census.

One possible route would be to check with Manchester Local Heritage Library to see if he appeared at the address in the 1918 or 1919 Absent Voters List. This would probably also indicate who was living at the property (or you may need to check the address in the "ordinary" voters list.

You now know he had a Manchester connection pre-war. I know you then have a gap - but when do you pick up firm dates again in the family and where are they living then? This may give clues as to what happened in between

Glad I was right about him being an original Labour Corps members.
