James was born about 1882 in Basingstoke. The 1901 census shows him to be a Driver age 19 with the 60th Field Company Royal Engineers at Longmoor Barracks.

The 1911 census shows him living with wife Margaret and daughter Vera age 1. He was a tin washer in a biscuit factory.

I was contacted by Helen because James is her husband’s  grandfather. He was invalided out of the army in 1916 and died in 1920.

Charles George

Son of Charles and Louisa Ireland, of 26, Nelson St., Southampton.




"Which puts into stark perspective the death, at the age of 25, of Charles Ireland. Despite shade temperatures of 125ºF in their first summer in India, the 1/5th Hampshires would lose but nine men to disease (out of 26 fatalities in all). Ireland, a parks-footballer who’d had a one-match trial with the Saints in 1909, was one of the battalion’s rare deaths from this cause. Having survived the journey home from India, Lance-Corporal Ireland died in the Royal Victoria Military Hospital at Netley and is buried in the neighbouring military cemetery.
