Clearwell War Memorial, K ROBERTS, 1939 Register (General)

Using today's free access to Ancestry and FindMyPast wesbites, I've just tried searching Kenneth in the 1939 Register, in the hope it might give a clue as to why he apparently joined the Sussex regiment, maybe he was living there ?.

First attempt using Ancestry, which is indeed offering free access for the Register, yet I couldn't find our man at all, but will try again later.

Using FindMyPast, using the exact same input data (name, birth year and place), I found our man straight away ! However the site's free access doesn't officially start until tomorrow, which I'd hoped was why I could not view the actual register image for him, but it seems the record is still "locked". However the available info clearly shows he was known as ROBERTS, and was still at home in Clearwell at the outbreak of WW2.

FindMyPast gave this hit from "the Roberts household"

Kenneth Roberts. 1919. West Dean R.D. Gloucestershire England. No 3 Temperance Cottage.
