    Default Timothy MARSDEN b c1879 Lancs - WW1

    In the WW1 Service Records (WO 363) this man's details are confused with (and even written on the same pages as) a FRED Marsden, also from Lancashire. I wonder whether "Timothy" was such an unusual name that he was known as/preferred "Fred"?

    The real Fred was born c1890, unmarried, mother Mary Ann, home Gt Harwood.
    I think I have untangled Timothy:

    Joined (possibly E Lancs, Labour or Manchesters) at Gt Harwood, 16 Feb 1916, declared age 36y 1m. Regt No: 205499.
    Married MARGARET JANE EMBLEY at St James' Church, Clitheroe on 19 Nov 1904.
    Home address: 20 Wilkin St, Clitheroe.
    Children: Mary Ellen 1905, Stephen 1907, Jane 1909, Alice 1911, Minnie 1913.
    Possibly survived WW1, but the dates 10Dec1915-1919 are for Fred.
