Born in August 1887 in Awsworth Notts, to Henry and Sarah Lamin. Elder Sisters Catherine (Kate), Mary Esther and Sarah Anne(Annie) and Elder brother John (Jack).
Educated at Awsworth Board School, just outside Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England.
I served with honour in the 9th Battalion York & Lancaster Regiment seeing front line action in Flanders and Northern Italy from the end of 1916 to January 1920.
i have just discovered this wonderful historical weblog. this is what i see as a perfect use of the new online multi-media tools, such as blogging. history and discovery, on a personal level. i am sure it has been a labor of love for you, and i thank you for what i am sure will be an enriching experience for myself.
i do have a question. is it possible for you to include a photograph of the grave/gravestone of the final resting place of katie and connie? i love the history resplendent in cemeteries, and the constant mystery of what stories those headstones could tell, if only... well, this unique blog would be a 21st century way of connecting the history and mystery.
i have often wondered if i myself could take on such a task, perhaps photographing small rural South Carolina cemeteries, and then finding bits and pieces of the history to go with the tombstones.
