Story: Harry George Edgar Neale was born in Chippenham, Wiltshire, on 15 Jun 1881 and baptised there on 1 Oct 1881 the son of Edgar Neale and Marianne Neale (nee Nodder). He lived all his early life in Chippenham until by the 1911 Census he was boarding out in Romsey, Hampshire. He had enlisted with the Honourable Artillery Company as a Private (Service No. 10958) rising to the rank at one time to Lance Corporal. He had registered his address on the Absent Voters Lists of 1918 and 1919 as 'Sorrento', Alcester, Shaftesbury, Dorset. He had married Dorothy Gwendoline Turner in West Hampstead, Middlesex, on 11 Jul 1915. It is not known in which theatre of war he served but on his discharge was awarded the Victory and British War Medals. By the time of the 1939 Register his wife was living at The Cottage, Upton House, Upton Lovell, Warminster, Wiltshire. The reference to Harry has not been released (along with many others on the page) possibly due to military involvement in WW2. His death was recorded in Brighton, Sussex, on 16 Jun 1968.
