Notes :

Frederick Baker is listed twice, under both Royal Navy and Army. He served only in the Royal Navy.

Wilfred Butcher - surname is given as Butcher or Butchers in some documents e.g. the Birth Index and 1901 Census give Butcher, but the 1911 Census, Marriage Index, and Death Index give Butchers. Wilfred's father, Ernest Butcher[s], in completing the 1911 Census return, gives his surname as Butchers in the main body of the form, but signs himself Ernest Butcher.

Acknowedgments :

Thanks to Paul Bradley for additional information.
