George Humphries 1894 Tipton KIA 12/12/1914

Postby mjay » Sun Aug 21, 2016 5:11 pm

I came across George Humphries born 1894 Tipton He was killed in action on 12 December 1914 age 20
Info found here
https://wolverhamptonswar.wordpress.com ... humphries/

I've been in touch with Andy Johnson Tipton remembers it appears George has slipped through the net. Andy will be adding what info we have soon.

Can anyone help Andy find any more info for George and his family please
The son of John and Mary Jane Humphries, George was born in Tipton in about 1894. In 1901 they were living at 128 Deanes Road, Heath Town, Wolverhampton, together with George’s siblings Mary Jane, Voilet [sic], John, Samuel, William, Leonard and Sydney. I have not been able to find 1911 census or any further army info

Thanks

Thanks Rocky for marriage look up.
Still not sure it's the right marriage seeing as they lived in Wednesfield and were born Moseley ?

Thanks for further census Jimmy
