    Paul,

    I'm a bit confused; you describe Major C G Jefferies as being the son of Charles and Marjorie Jefferies of Denchworth, but the CWGC has him being the son of William George and Ellen Jefferies; husband of Patricia Mabel Jefferies of Woking Surrey.

    Charles and Marjorie Jefferies were the parents of Sgt George C Jefferies. Did you really mean this gentleman was associated with Hungerfold? I'm unable to find a Hungerfold (in the UK at least) and wonder if this should be Hungerford?

    Brian

    Brian you are right - I look the info from the wrong file - (even the school confused the two) - the school records has his DOB as 1906 which matches major C G Jefferies as being the son of William George and Ellen Jefferies;
