A Joker

A note in Filey Genealogy & Connections tells us that James Edward TYSON “joined the Navy in WW1. He was at Jutland. He was a joker.”

James was a Stoker 1st Class on HMS Inflexible.

He was also the son of William TYSON (AP 625 · marriage · 14 April) and Emily ABBOTT (AP 626 · marriage · 14 April). The parents are on the Shared Tree but not James Edward or his wife Mary Elizabeth MARSHALL. Their daughter Nancy is remembered on this stone in St Oswald’s churchyard.
