FAIRHALL, James Frederick

✟ ≠ Pte 14153 9th London Regt, Royal Fusiliers. K.I.A. 3/7/1916 and remembered on Thiepval Memorial, Somme. b 2/8/1899 West Ham, so he was not yet 17, and not 20 as his Army record states, which means he lied about his age on enlistment when living at Plaistow, West Ham. 1911C living in West Ham. Records are confusing. His father was William b1860 Reigate, and mother was Sarah Jane Standren, b 1865 Hathersage (she is not on 1871C but on 1881C is in London). To add to the confusion, not only does the name vary; Standrine, Standrien, but also her place of birth; Derby, Bakewell, Hathersage.  However, the baptism records state Hathersage in 1865. Her sister Emily b1867. Their mother was Mary Ann Hodgkinson, who married Samuel Standrin at Hathersage in 1862.
