Notes
  1. In this case Godfrey succumbed in the 1918 Influenza Pandemic having been discharged on medical grounds more than a year previously for an unrelated illness. His adopted family apparently persuaded someone locally that the death was due to his Military service, but as the Government required a death certificate indicating the death was due to Military service, the request for War casualty grants were vetoed and Godfrey is not listed as a War casualty on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Web site.
     

  2. I have assumed that this is the brother of Joe and Dennis STEVENS as he died in Woking in 1919 of Gangrene?
     

  3. Is this the correct Ernest STREET? It is claimed so by a Family tree on Ancestry.com, but the connection to Woking is not well documented.
     

  4. I have been unable to discover the Birth date of Albert WILLIAMS? He was apparently born c1892 in Chobham to parents Abraham and Emily (nee BAKER) WILLIAMS He married Rose SMITH at St Peters in 1913 and they had 2 children, Rose remarried in 1918. If anyone can confirm Albert's place and date of birth it would be appreciated.
