Royal Navy Telegraphis John Henry Hudson (HMS Tipperary)

#1
We are looking for information/photographs of John Henry Hudson or his family.

John was killed on the HMS Tipperary in 1916 at the Battle of Jutland when it was was sunk by the SMS Westfalen. He was 18. I have found him on the Commonwealth War Graves Comission

This is all of the information I have on John Henry Hudson:

He was born in England (I'm not too certain where, but I believe it was in or around Folkestone. He was the son of John Henry Hudson and Elsa Margaret Bowman.

He joined the Royal Navy at the age of 16 having lied about his age.

He had the following sibilings (that I know of):

Poppy Margery Annie Hudson married to Leslie Isaac Pritchad (I believe she was a nurse during either WWI or WWII but not certain which it was). She went by Margery.
Cyril Hudson
Jeffery John Jellico Hudson
Douglas Jack Hudson (died of wounds sustained in an attack aboard HMS Liverpool in 1940 - he was also a telegraphist with the Royal Navy - during WWII)

Any help would be greatly appreciated please email me:

Helen
