Robert was the first of four sons born to Charles and Mary Edmond nee LANE (Tuesday’s post The Young Father). He is remembered on his parents’ headstone but is buried some distance from them in a Commonwealth War Grave.
Information about his army service is sparse on the CWGC website – and his service number in the index differs from that on the grave marker.
The birth of a daughter, Dorothy G., was registered in Ripon in 1934, mother’s maiden surname GREENHOW, but I cannot find a record of the marriage of Robert and Vera Beatrice.
I haven’t made any progress connecting Robert to his forebears on the FamilySearch Shared Tree. This is how things stand today.
