Additional information

Known as ‘Bertie’.

Born 1894 on the Isle of Man (Find My Past records his residence as The Lodge, Kirk Michael, Isle of Man).

The 1911 Census records Bertie as still living at The Lodge, Kirk Michael, Isle of Man. He was reported to be one of five children and the only son of John Thomas, butler, and Ann Elizabeth, cook/housekeeper, at the Bishop Wilson Theological College. Bertie was reported to be a domestic gardener.

Bertie enlisted at Alnwick, citing his residence as West Lilburn. Given that he was a domestic gardener and working at “West Lilburn”, it is plausible that he was a gardener at the Lilburn Tower Estate (as were Frederick Alec Leonard JERRAM, Tom PYBUS and Richard RIDDING).
