Tuesday's Tip: New Document in the Shop - In Search of Henry
It tells the story of my great-grandfather, Henry James Weaver, who was accidentally killed in WWI. Henry was married to Florence Smale and was my maternal grandmother's father. He came from Curry Rivel in Somerset and spent a few short weeks serving in the Oxford & Bucks Light Infantry before he died in September 1916, ten days before Florence gave birth to my gran. Henry is buried in Merville Communal Cemetery Extension in France and is also commemorated on the War Memorials in Curry Rivel and the town of Tavistock in Devon, where Florence was from.
