Poppy on a wooden cross

Age: 24
Date of birth: 1891

Parents: Alfred Joseph and Sarah Ann Goddard (nee Tebbutt)
Address: 28 Market Place

Occupation: Annealer at tinplate works

Harry’s parents, Alfred Joseph and Sarah Ann (nee Tebbutt), were married in January 1886 at All Saints church in Warwick, at which time his father worked as an iron moulder.  Henry was baptised on 25th June 1891 in Warwick.

Despite searching, we have found very little information regarding Henry and would welcome any additions or amendments to the following:

We have found that Harry’s brothers Alfred Charles (born 1886) and Walter (born 1889) were living with his maternal grandparents David and Elizabeth Tebbutt in Emscote Road in 1901.  Neither Harry, nor his mother are on the census.  Harry’s father, Alfred, is living at 39 Church Cottages, Honily, Warwickshire and is noted as the cousin of the head of the household.



We can find no other trace of Harry.  The application for Harry to appear on Warwick War Memorial was made by a Mr A Goddard, possibly Harry’s father or his brother
