Family Research

I have only been able to find one relative who was killed in action in The Great War.

Private Richard Ernest Bolton, 304410, 13th Bn., Tank Corps who died on 08 August 1918, Remembered with Honour Heath Cemetery, Harbonnieres

Many others served, including 7 Brothers of my Grand Mother, all of whom survived.

The Second World War was to prove a devastating conflict for the family:

My Maternal Grandfather, Oliver Marsden Roscoe was serverly wounded at Tobruk in December 1941 and was, as a result, Medically Discharged.

On the Paternal side it was much worse!
