he died "Date Unknown" .

 

Researcher Helen Sutton says "... Wilfred was a very regular visitor to our home. He came to Enfield to visit his brother Jim and our family but always incorporated a trip to the nearby graves of his parents Janet and George in the local churchyard at St Thomas's, a short walk from our home. He was a very handsome and dignified man who had served as an ambulance officer in France in World War One. ....... As a child I was fascinated by his war stories and can remember many of them. He was married to my grandmother's niece and so there were many connections and lots of reasons for family interaction".6

 

BOLAND, BOWLAND and in some sources BOLLAND are different spellings of the family name.

 

Adelaide S ROBERTS7 was the daughter of Alfred Anthony ROBERTS ( - ) and Ada Jane ROBERTS (1878- ).
