Charles Everet Ingram (see notes below) was born in Donhead St. Mary, Wiltshire, on 16 Apr 1885 and baptised at the Birdbush Independent Chapel, Donhead St. Mary, on 10 May 1885 the son of William Ingram and Elva Ellen Ingram (nee Brickell).  Apart from later years and during Military Service, he lived most his life in Donhead St. Mary.  He had married Ida Margaret Tucker at Enmore Green, Shaftesbury, Dorset, on 2 Aug 1909 and they set up home at Pleasant Cottage, Salisbury Road, Shaftesbury, Dorset.  Regrettably Ida died in 1913 but Charles then went on to re-marry Harriet Adela Bennett in Donhead St. Mary on 5 Aug 1914.  He had enlisted and joined the 2/4th Battalion of the Dorsetshire Regiment as a Private (Service No. 201673) later transferring to the Somerset Light Infantry (Service No. 242139).  It is not known in which theatre of war he served but on his discharge on 6 Apr 1919 was awarded the Victory and British War Medals.   His second wife, Harriet, died during 1933 and by the time of 1939 Register he was a widower living at Edmondsham, Nr. Cranbourne, Dorset, working as a Dairyman.  His death was recorded in Blandford, Dorset, on 2 Sep 1946.   His brother, George, also served in the conflict.   (NB It appears Charles favoured the name Everet (or Everett) as his first name in later life as per the records found.)
