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.
Hi, Do you know if Stanton Ironworks was in Stanton Hill Nottinghamshire? I live in Stanton Hill and would be interested to find out where the ironworks were. I know there was a pit in Stanton Hill, as my house is one of the pithouses!
Just read about this blog on CNN. What a wonderful idea! About Harry living with Jack, another possibility is that Harry was sent there to give him an opportunity to attend a better school or something. Or perhaps his mother was in poor health and unable to care for him. Or perhaps he was somehow working to help Jack. Lots of possibilities.
