Person Details
Mosborough, Yorks
William Heeds and Emily Bell married in 1883 in Retford. They had their first child, Eva, in Retford in 1885. There appears no existing record of their travels but records exist of the birth of their next 2 children in London, Ontario, Canada. Gertrude was born there in 1887 and Charles Edward on 25 August 1888. The family were back in the UK in 1891, living at High Lane, Ridgeway, Eckington and William working as a coal miner. Their last child to complete the family was Lewis Albert in 1894 in Ridgeway. By 1911, all the girls had left home and the two males were both working as coal miners. Prior to enlisting at Mosborough, Lewis was resident in Sheffield but his parents, William and Emily moved to 187 Kilton Road, Worksop which is why Lewis is named on three Worksop memorials.
