george frederick hull


hi all
i am trying to trace relations of george frederick hull born 17th sept 1917 south shields died 11th jan 1944 kent he was my grandad due to been so young when he died . we know nothing about him or his family .
Hi Carol

Do these names ring any bells

children to parents Hull/Noble in South Shields

Robert J O/D 1911
Doris J/M 1913
Florence A/J 1914
Elizabeth A J/S 1915
George Frederick O/D 1917
John O/D 1919


I thought at first this was a wrong record but have changed my mind

William Hull married Elizabeth Ann Noble - Sept qtr 1899 South Shields
ref 10a 1184

On the latest census william aged 36 S. Shields, Elizabeth Ann 33 Chester le Street are with William 9 S. Shields. I could not understand why there was such a gap between 1902 and Robert J in 1911. Then I noticed that they had had 3 children die. These being

John Robert J/S 1906
Robert James O/D 1907
Jenny J/M 1909

so they fill the gap nicely

Hi Carol,think i have found an answer of sorts...the date of 1944 got me thinking WW2......died in the last year of the war and if the man in this link is him he is buried in Ashford Kent,was in the pioneer corps,aged only 26.
Buried in Bybrook cemetery in Ashford,the pioneer corps were men who did light engineering for the war effort,laying train lines,building hangers...they did a lot of good work and two years after the war the Pioneer corps were renamed Royal Pioneer Corps in recognition of the good work they did.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Pioneer_Corps

My GUESS Carol is that he died in an accident or maybe Ashford was hit by bombs....of course this is for you to find out i am only guessing how he died.

99% certain this is him..............hope this may help you get some more info on him.
Married to Minnie who was living in Drighlington at time of his death it seems.

All the best with your research Carol,could be an interesting if very sad story.


Does this help you Dave.....marriage to Minnie?
