Dead Man's Penny WW1
published by gricharduk - 7 hours 51 minutes 27 seconds ago.

There is a Walter Wiseman, born 1893 at Weston, listed in the 1911 census working as an assistant at a restaurant in 2B, New Road, Woolwich. The restaurant owner is a George Collins.

In the 1901 census, he is listed as living with his grandmother, Lucy Wiseman, a retired school teacher, at 88a Albert Road, Portishead.

Walter is listed, with some biographical details, in the Bexley Roll of Honour:

I hope this helps,

Richard

Looks like the Italian Gardens - Cecil WALKER's shop on the left, partially out of the photo, and the old Post Office next to it.  Compare with this photo.

Thanks to your help - I've found his death!   It was in London in 1870. Now, where was he buried?

Wow, thanks for that - that is great - not for them though! - But as you say it does give something more to work with. And those children were theirs as well born in 1847 and 1848.  Many thanks - John GREGORY is Worthy No 14 so I'm grateful for your and Dave's help with them.

The following from the Weston-super-Mare Gazette, and General Advertiser 25 September 1858 might give a clue as to when Charles and Harriet split up:

Caution - This is to give Notice, that I will not be answerable for any Debt or Debts which my wife, Harriet Gregory, may contract from the date hereof. (signed)

Charles Gregory

dated 2, Crescent, Weston-super-Mare, Sept. 24, 1858
