Welcome to the Forum. I too am fairly new and finding my feet with the site.
It is kind of you to make a look-up offer and I think if you posted the offer in the Military Section there would be more people aware of your offer. Simply click on Community Forum at the top of the page...
Just a quick update on my search.
I have still not found a death date - but Walter Hugh Sebire did take the trip to Philadelphia on his way to Canada. I have now found record of him taking part in the First World War - joining the Royal Engineers when his address was given as Doyles...
How lucky your boys are to have such a devoted Mum. :)
Hope you had a productive day looking at houses and visiting churches and stuff.
Thank you again for all your help.
:cool: Hiya Ath
Great to hear about your own family search and full of admiration too. Unlike you, I did not consider looking at the Electral Rolls! :rolleyes: So thanks for pointing me in that direction. I must do a bit of research into that to find out more about it.
I appreciate your...
Just done a search and Fulwood Barracks is now also the home of the:

An excellent start for me, thanks. Have posted it in case it comes in handy for someone else. ;)
My Grandfather was born in Guernsey and adopted in 1905 by Mr & Mrs Wade who were in the army, possibly based at Guernsey at the time. A copy of his informal hand-written 'Adoption Note' was later stamped ARMY PAY OFFICE, PRESTON (- the stamp is dated but the date is unclear). Does anyone know...
I too found that particular Walter Hugh Sebire and also wondered if he could be the father ;) so I am thrilled you found it too. Even though this was an illegitimate birth, do you think Nellie Smith would really have given her baby the name of the real father?
And yes, you are right, he...
Thank you for the address details and if it is no trouble to you, the additional addresses would be really helpful. The reason I am looking at them is a bit complicated.eek)
My Grandfather was born on Guernsey in 1903 to a single mum, Nellie Smith and he was given the name Walter Hugh...
I do not know if he returned to Guernsey. I can find no death date of him in Guernsey and as he had made a trip to Canada before the First World War,:confused: I wondered if he had gone back there after the war? :confused:
Is anyone able to lookup the names of people at the address of Ruettes Brayes, Guernsey, Channel Islands in the 1901 census. I think it might be a number of houses so hope I am not asking too much.
I am desperate to find any information regarding the death of Walter Hugh Sebire, b1880 on Guernsey. He took part in the Great War in the Royal Engineers. Was discharged in 1918 but I can find no record of him after that?
Has anyone got the hammer for this "brick wall"?:confused:
I am female and fast approaching 60. I live on a boat on the canal in East Yorkshire with hubby and cat. I have a "dongle" as my internet connection attached to an old laptop so everything to do with it goes s..l..o..w..l..y! But I get there in the end!
Look forward to a little...
