410416 - Unaccounted airmen - 16-4-1941Hi Henk Bet you didn't realise you were mixing with the British Nobility!! Frederick C G Eden is registered at Westminster after being killed in an Air raid, he was the 6th holder of the title Baron Auckland(the Auckland in this case is in County Durham). I suppose it is possible he was attending our Parliament.(The Houses of Parliament were among buildings damaged by bombing during the night of 16/17 Apr 1941) Now to business! Davidson,20 is registered at St Ives, Cambridgeshire(this area is right for Hemmingford Abbots.( ?Oxford R6087)), both Raphael and Shipway-Fowler are registered at Chippenham,Wiltshire it could connect them to Hart K3146, it is the right area.2 possible William A Jones, one ,44, in Lambeth S London just across the river from Westminster. and one ,36, in Manchester(CWGC don't have an age but theirs is buried at Hendon in N London). Thomas C Sharkey,28, and Donald J White,27 are registered at Howden, E Yorkshire a slight puzzle as this office supposedly closed in 1937 and it's function passed to Holderness and Howdenshire, but on a previous thread Tom found others also at Howden, it might be that on the list on Ancestry the "shire"was dropped for lack of space. Govett,20, is registered at Doncaster E Yorkshire, Thorpe is registered at Newton, probably the one in Devon. Silverman didn't come up so could be Scotland.
