World War Deaths - Linked Families
7 - H Strangeway
From Veterans Affairs, Canada
Name: Herbert Strangeway (name entered and signed as Bert and then amended)
Birth: January 1, 1897 Leeds, Yorkshire
Enlistment: April 6, 1916 Chatham, Ontario, Canada
Next of kin: Laura Strangeway (aunt), Chatham, Ontario
However no matching record in birth registrations for 1897 found at either FreeBMD or YorkshireBMD. Nearest match is Herbert born 4-Jun-1898 however he died in 1917 at Ypres.
As regards his aunt Laura - the most likely seems to be the Laura Andrews who married George Strangeway in Leeds in 1893 and who appears in 1911 Census still in Leeds. Also no record at Canadian Immigration of either Laura or Bert under Strangeway(s)?
