The earliest photograph that the family have of HARRY was taken whilst he was in the Army during the First World War. Unfortunately there are no details of his service record available and the photograph is not dated

The photograph that is shown below is marked on the reverse  with the date "August 1939" the month before Second World War began.


The actual location of the first photograph was given on the reverse of that shown below. It states that the photograph was taken in August 1939 at "Ventnor Road Blackpool" which I assume must be the address of the house where the family were stopping for their holidays



The third photograph was taken many years later and again the location is not known.

HARRY died aged 71 on 8th September 1961 at his home in Dunella Road Wadsley Sheffield. At the time of his death he was suffering from Lung Cancer He was interred four days later at Wisewood Cemetery, Sheffield after a church service at the local church of St Polycarps, Malin Bridge. Sheffield
