Person Details
Radford Nottingham
He was the son of Edward Charles and Mary Ann Deane and the older brother of James Francis and Harold Michie Deane (their parents had one other child who had died and who is not recorded on the 1891, 1901 or 1911 census). In 1911 they lived at the Police Lodge on Bath Street, Nottingham; his father was an inspector with the City Police. However, on the night of the 1911 census Edward was a visitor in the home of William and Elizabeth Chapman of Ivy Cottage, Roman Bank, Skegness. Prior to this, and at the time of the 1901 census, the family had lived at 1 (-) Terrace in the parish of St Mark's, Nottingham, while in 1891, with Edward (4) their only child, Edward and Mary were living at 28 Mowbray Street, Nottingham. On both census returns Edward's father's occupation is given as police officer. Edward married Ethel Rickett in Nottingham in 1912 (Apr/May/June) and their only child, Edward J Deane, was born the same year (birth registered in the final quarter of 1912). Ethel married John G Foster in 1924 and they lived at Grift Bank Farm, Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire. Edward's brother, Harold, also served in the Northumberland Fusiliers. He attested on 29 November 1915, aged 20 years 1 month, and joined at Woolwich on 2 December 1915. However, he was discharged from the army on 30 October 1917 after serving for 1 year 336 days, as he was no longer physically fit for war service; his army service record shows that he was a patient at Bath War Hospital from 29 April 1917 to 10 July, suffering from bronchitis, and he spent a further 10 days in a military hospital at Weedon from 29 July to 7 August 1917.
In 1901 he was an assistant stock keeper but by 1911 was a commercial traveller working for a publisher.
