So Philip had family descendants not too far away, but how find at such short notice... ??

=========


So why did WW1 soldier Phillip John Herbert die, and be buried, in the Forest after settling in Lancashire ?
The burial suggests he was back living here, not just visiting friends or family such as with Maud's wedding ?.

Maybe his own children give clues ?

Searching possible marriage for Philip Herbert born Atherton aka Leigh district in 1910;

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Mar 1943
Boardman Anna Herbert Leigh 8c 358
Herbert Philip Boardman Leigh 8c 358

Cannot find any children.

------

And his daughter Ellen Herbert also born Leigh district, in 1904.

Not a rare name, but this MAY be her,

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Jun 1931
Gregory Stanley Herbert Leigh 8c 496
Herbert Ellen Gregory Leigh 8c 496


Surname First name(s) Mother District Vol Page
Births Jun 1935
Gregory Geoffrey H Herbert Leigh 8c 360


So no obvious links back to the FoD.

???


PLEASE, if anyone can help find more relevant records, I'd be very gratefull.

Hopefully this might point towards any descendants who might still like to own his medal ?

Thanks.
