414 As a result of the current climate of political instability, it is not possible for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to manage or maintain its cemeteries and memorials located within Iraq. Alternative arrangements for commemoration have therefore been implemented and a two volume Roll of Honour listing all casualties buried and commemorated in Iraq has been produced. These volumes are on display at the Commission's Head Office in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England and are available for the public to view. The CWGC continues to monitor the situation in Iraq and once the political climate has improved to an acceptable level a major rehabilitation project for its cemeteries and commemorations will commence. Cleaver, Cyril Morrison (I7741)
 
415 As a young man in Britain, Ted (as he was known) worked as a clerk in Bristol. At some point, he also worked for the Great Western Railway.

At the urging of his brother Fred - who had already immigrated to Canada in 1907, Ted and his wife Maud, also decided to leave Bristol and emigrate to Canada. Around 1913, Ted and Maud left England bound for Canada. Upon arrival in Canada, they settled in Kenora, Ontario where Ted found employment with the Canadian Pacific Railroad as a locomotive fireman.

Shortly afer the outbreak of WW1, on March 29, 1915, Ted enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces and returned to England from Thunder Bay with the 52nd Army Regiment. Ted fought in the battle of Vimy Ridge in France during April 1917. Later, at Passchendaele (Ypres) in Belgium, Ted suffered a wound to his arm. He had reached the rank of Sargeant.

Around 1918, Ted returned to Canada but due to his war injury he had to seek employment other than with the railroad. He became the Warden at the Kenora Jail. 
Cox, Edwin Walter (I5144)
 
416 As an Army Reservist, Frederick was called up for service and transferred to the Royal Engineers. During his service, he was captured and taken to a POW camp from which he escaped and made it to Jersey. Unfortunately, he was re-captured on Jersey and returned to a POW camp in Germany. Stubbs, Frederick Charles (I22080)
 
417 As an Attorney at Law, Adelaide acted on behalf of her sister, Mary Broad de Rusett, against Captain John Rose Brandon and Mary Ann Brandon, and others, who wanted George Quigley's (aka, George Harris de Rusett's) property in Queensland. Tripe, Adelaide Elizabeth (I12517)
 
418 As can be seen from the marriage record, this marriage was bigamous. Harriet tried to cover any trace of her first marriage by giving false details of her name (using her mother's mis-spelled maiden-name). She also exchanged the surnames of both of her parents. She gives her father's name as William Cole and her mother's as Mary Ann Cole, formerly Strude! Family F4683
 
419 As soon after the end of WW1 as possible, Edith and her husband Fred Schack returned to Canada aboard the ship "Melita". They arrived in St John, New Brunswick on 1 March 1919, their destination being Fred's home in Winnipeg. Fred was returning on account of his demobilisation from the army. Edith, of course, was emigrating as a UK citizen.

Young, Edith Beatrice (I26972)

475 Baptism registers at St Mary Whitechapel suggest that William and his family lived previously in Mansel Street, off Rosemary Lane, maybe still scraping together the capital for their shop. Mrs Winterbotham took on the fostering of the (presumably illegitimate) child of a merchant, and William was sent to his grandparents in Cheltenham.

He did not return until the age of ten, when, accompanied by a maiden aunt, he was set down at the 'Bolt and Tun' in Fleet Street amid the "noise novelty and confusion" of a London Saturday evening. He "found it very tedious to await the customary hour of a London Sunday morning" to meet his parents properly. As he settled in, he loved to watch the ships on the Thames and imagine the different continents of the world.

William's experiences at school might resonate with any era. He was ribbed for his country accent, and the teachers assumed (wrongly) that he could not have been taught to London standards. After a caning for a misdemeanour he had not committed, William refused to go back to school. His exasperated parents tried everything, including grounding him and giving him irksome chores. He found a way out through apprenticeship to a Silversmith, William Harrison of Monkwell Street.

It is hard to know how typical William's experience was; this was long after the heyday of London apprenticeship, but it does seem an informal affair. He appealed to a friend of his father's who was seeking an apprentice, and his parents eventually consented, with no fee being paid. He therefore had to carry out some menial tasks, such as cleaning shoes and knives, sweeping the shop and making his own bed! Having been taken on at the age of 13, below the City's statutory age (14) for indenture, his master agreed that he should be paid for his work in the last year of his seven year term, or be at liberty to go elsewhere. William was a keen negotiator. At only 14, he claims, he learned that a master might expect the work of an apprentice to bring in 15/- a week, and asked successfully to be paid for any work he accomplished beyond this value.

As a journeyman, Winterbotham writes that he was drawn into a dissolute life (the details of which are, alas, no longer extant), resulting in illness and a long spell being nursed back at home by his long suffering parents. He was subsequently in and out of work, with the silver trade suffering in the mid 1780s. He appears to have joined in the Gordon Riots.

Out of sceptical curiosity he attended a non-conformist service in Pennington Street and shortly afterwards joined the congregation. In 1789 he was baptised by Mr Fleming in the river at Old Ford. Although still suffering mental illness, he became a successful preacher, and left this second phase of London life to act as Assistant Baptist Minister in Plymouth.

Taken from an article for "London Lives" written by Melanie Winterbotham, a descendant and historian.

481 Before her marriage to Maurice McCrae Blackburn in 1914, Doris Amelia Hordern worked as a campaign secretary for Vida Goldstein when Vida stood for a seat in Federal Parliament. Together with her husband, Doris campaigned vigorously against conscription in 1916-17. After the war she continued her involvement in a number of groups pressing for reform. She was president of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom from 1928-30. After her husband's death in 1946, she stood as an independent Labor member and won the Federal seat of Bourke, which had formally been held by her husband. In the 1960s she co-founded the Aborigines Advancement League and the Federal Council for Aboriginal Advancement. Hordern, Doris Amelia (I14789)

The whole family group also appeared on the ship's manifest of the SS Philadelphia which was sailing 2 April 1902. However, the names have been crossed through and marked N.O.B. (not On Board). It is noted that the group were "upgraded" to 2nd class cabins when they eventually sailed on 12 April.

According to the entry records at New York (Ellis Island), all 12 family members tickets were paid for by one George Wooster of Georgia, USA. The family give their destination in the USA as Georgia.
