Albert George HANSCOMBE

Bert Hanscombe and Ellen Cromwell were married 25 April 1909 in theParish Church according to the rites of the Established Church, he was22 years, a bachelor, dustman and she was 19 years, a spinster. Bothgave their residence as 34 Kimberley Road, Beckenham. Father of thegroom was John Hanscombe, dustman, deceased and father of the bridewas George Alfred Cromwell, carman, deceased. Harold StanleyHanscombe (Stan) was born 6 March 1916 at 83 Ravenscroft Road,Beckenham, England, son of Bert and Helen Hanscombe. Rank/Professionof father was given as Sergeant No 828, 7th Battalion, East SurreyRegiment, Urban District Council Carman. As for Bert's death? I cameacross an article on Beckenham War Memorial and I quote: "Thismemorial commemorates........ It was unveiled on Sunday 24 July 1921by former Sergeant Bert Hanscombe, DCM, MM, a local council employee(dustman) and one of nine (9) brothers who fought in and survived WW1.Prince George, The Duke of Kent, laid a wreath at the memorial onThursday 20th October 1932 when amongst others, he was introduced toMr Hanscombe, then Secretary of the Beckenham British Legion Branch."Perhaps Bert did not die in WW1. Stan didn't know if he had brothersor sisters but I have found at least one sister, Winifred K, whosebirth was registered in the March quarter of 1914. Above notes fromJudy Allen - 4 May 2001
