Hi Lightly,

With a name like that you would think he would be easy to find but on the contrary zilch for 1901.

Found his medal card as follows:-

Boniface Riseborough
Suffolk Regiment
Regimental number

15295, 70987, 5820974

I think i will have to get his birth cert to find out his parents names.

Where did you find the details of (was it his medal card)?
Good going Julie many thanks.

There are a lot of peaple with the surname Boniface on the I.G.I dont know where to start though, it must originate from somewhere i'll find out (fingers crossed)i won't be beaten.

Thanks again Julie

Thanks Julie,
You found them brilliant.
I found a Stanley Plant Riseborough born Plomesgate 1891, also Evelyn Getrude M Riseborough born 1896, was wondering if they were related, now i know they are.
Thanks Again.
