Charles Robert Dickinson - Barnes Wallis Connection

I am researching Charles Robert Dickinson (1869 -1952) who worked for Vickers Armstrong as an Engineer. He worked on several projects in South America between 1922 and 1937. By the time of the 1939 register he had retired. The family believe that he worked alongside Barnes Wallis for a time, but this may just be a family story. Does anybody know if there is a repository for records of Vickers Armstrong employees or if there ...

Awarded MBE?

Hello lovely WDYTYA? readers!

Just by Googling his name I found this page from The Gazette ( ... 1/data.pdf). It's dated 7 June 1918, which was Herbert's birthday, so I presume it's a list of notable people who were born on that date. It says Herbert is ...

Death in workhouse

I have after nearly 40 years of looking found my gtgt grandmother's death in St Ann's Workhouse in Nottingham. Her surname was altered by a wrong spelling, but having gained her death certificate it was proved to be her. What I do not understand is that she had bought a substantial burial plot in Nottingham cemetary which must have proved relatively expensive. At least 4 more family members were later buried with her. Why would ...
