Hi Susan

Would you be able to look up Corp. Walter Sheil born 26 Feb 1883 of the Royal Berkshires reg. no. 9851? We are having some difficulty tracing his military history.

Thank you so much

Sue

Good morning Sue.

Would it be possible to look for a soldier by the name of CHARLES,PAYNE (Private) service number GS/52095.He was a Royal Fusilier,according to the Bn war diary he was killed on the 24th March 1918,but there is no mantion of him on the C.W.G.C. or on the S.D.G.W.sites Im guessing he may have turned up at some later date, and may even have survived the war and the entry in the diary may have been written in error.

Best Regards.

Andy

Hi Sue,

The only W Sheil in the National Roll was a chap living in Birmingham and with the KRRC.

Also, this record is in Ancestry pension file. it is interesting in that the address when he was discharged in March 1919 is given as Upper Eddington, Hungerford, Berks.

Not sure if this is any help to you.

Susan.

Evening Alan,

Cannot find anything for any of your men in National Roll.

Also looked on Ancestry in Pension and Service records for each one. Cannot find a thing. Sorry,

Have managed to download some MIC if you have not already got them. if you would like them PM me your email and I will send them on to you.

Once again, sorry cannot find anything....

Susan.

Hi Susan - many thanks for making this kind offer.

If it isn't taking too much of a liberty, I would be very grateful if you could look up the following two names for me:

Joseph MERISON - Possibly Middlesex Regt

Mark John MERISON - Unit Unknown

They are (hopefully!) brothers from the Shoreditch/Hackney area.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Paul

Morning Paul,

The only MERISON names mentioned with the initials you ask for are the following:

J (Middlesex Regiment)

MJ (Navy)

both chaps from Edmonton. Not sure if any use to you.

MERISON_from_National_Roll.doc

Regards,

Susan.

will have a look on ancestry for you also....

Hi Paul, No "pension" records available. The service records have only been uploaded to the "G" or "H" (cannot readily remember).

The MIC section shows the following - Joseph.

Nothing for MJ Merison (but if the one in the previous posting is your man - naval records would need checking).....

If I can remember will look for both names once the full set of service records are uploaded (not sure when that is due by).....

You can always jog my memory though. Always pleased to help out.

Susan.

Paul - a small bit more information:

from 1901 census:

It seems as if Mark and Joseph were brothers - from the shoreditch area.

1st image shows address: 2nd image is the rest of the family: on a previous sheet of census records......

Dear Susan

I can't thank you enough for your help - I had the census image but the NRGW and MIC details are fanstastic :)

I do have Mark's Naval Service Sheet from Kew, but once upon a time searched the WO363 Microfilm and found no sign of Joseph whatsoever.

However, now I know I wasn't searching in vain! You really have been very kind.

Thanks for all your help.

Paul
