Many thanks Ladies :)

Wonder why on Leonard's military memorial its stated "Son of Lily Kenney, of Port Elizabeth, Cape Province, South Africa" She must have moved there at a later date.

Thank you.

To add to my last post in 1926 a Mr J F Kenney of 78 Bemers? Street, Leicester, born 1884, a Shoemaker's Foreman left Southampton bound for Port Elizabeth.

I cannot make out the name of the street on either entry other than it begins Be.

Just searched a map of Leicester and found a Berners Street.
