    This is really fascinating stuff. Also quite sad at the same time. I have a feeling that as August's children were quite young when he left, they probably didn't remember him and never knew that they...

    That record came up as a hint but I can't access it because I don't have worldwide membership.
    Is it possible that August went back to Germany when war broke out to fight for his country, and ended...

    Thanks Pam. I've ordered a few bits from GRO recently so I'll have to wait for some funds. Not too expensive when ordering one or two certificates but it soon adds up!

    That was going to be my next plan of action. Sadly, I will have to wait until pay day!

    I'm not that worried about it really. Just curious as to the reasons why they might have been missed.
    I like to have all the pieces of the puzzle where possible.

    Yes, that's what I found too. I will look into the possibility of there being another Old Church Road in the area, but I can't imagine that being the case.

    Is it possible that they were just out...

    One question I still have though is that if the Esther Price who died in 1946 is the right one, why was her name not mentioned in any of her son's military records? The other soldiers left their...

    A question about barmaids

    Does anyone know how old a woman would have to be to become a barmaid in the 1870s? I am assuming she would have to be at least 18 but things may have been different then.
