List all the waifs and strays you discover here, and perhaps we can find them a home.

  1. Simon MAX m Kitty SUNDERLAND 1906 Bradford

    As this man served as SAMUEL MARKS, he is "mis-filed" in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363). Born in Russia, and unable to read/write English, it is possible that Samuel MARKS is his real name - perhaps the Bradford registrar misheard in 1906? (Wife Kitty is "Kate" in the Record) Marriage: 27...

As Murray MARKS, Morris CHELMINSKI joined the Royal Scots Fusiliers in December 1915, declared age 23y 7m. Served as Pte 23043, and was reported as "Missing presumed died" on 30...

  3. DAVIDSON, Gideon b1902 - WW1

    This "man" (he was only 15!) enlisted as Lewis MARKS and so is "mis-filed" in the WW1 Service Records (WO 363). There is an 1898 birth for a Louis MARKS, so perhaps they knew each other? Gideon DAVIDSON enlisted with the Manchester Regt on 16 October 1916, declared age 18y. Regt No: 45245....

  5. Morris MARKYER b 1879 Russia - WW1

    From the WW1 Service Records (WO 363) - a man born in Russia whose Leeds marriage does not appear in the GRO records, did not write English and did not speak the language well. My "best guess" (assuming that the date of marriage - 14 August 1904 - is correct) is that he was married as Morris...

  18. James & John Brooke MARSHALL - WW1

    This is not a case of papers being "mis-filed" - it is an ORIGINAL ERROR. Perhaps a Clerk making alterations? Difficult to understand how it happened - the men were NOT in the same regiment. But if one of these 2 men is yours ... you will need a fine toothcomb to sort the service details! JOHN...
