    Henry Jones Army records found

    Jeesh that would make him 17 yrs old when killed in action, makes you think how bad it must have been for kids of that age to rush to join the forces....i'll take that as his age and carry on from there, see what I find........thanks for the reply.................Paul

    Army Records

    Hi Pejay, I have checked the Henry Jones from 1892/3 at the town hall Rochdale and it's the wrong one, no father named Thomas......I had a quick look through the medal records for 1914/18 on that well known website and there are 7 possibles from the york and lancaster regiment for those...

    Army Records

    That is exactly what I thought when I looked at the witness, Victor D Chiddy was born and married in leeds so he was obviously an army buddy of Henry's......that could just be the break I have been looking for in tracing Henry's regiment....at least it's another line of enquiry to go...

    Henry Jones born 1892/3

    Hi Maddie, Just did as you suggested and Googled Canal Boatmen...looks like that line of searching is dead in the water (no pun intended)....no wonder I can't find any trace on the census returns...such a shame as they sound like a bunch that it would be fun to research.....they certainly led...
