I am trying to find my great grandfather George Harold simons b.1874 in Leicestershire. In the 1891 census he was 16 and still living at home but then he disappears untill 1906 when he marries my great grandmother. I have found the rest of his family on the 1901 census but not a trace of him. The only thing I have got is a small wooden box that opens to a writting desk with his initals GHS dated 1895 and inside this is a small red bible with South Africa 1900 written on it, so I think he could have been in the army in the Boer War but how would I find out if he was there or not with out knowing anything more about him ?
