Walter Frederick Hacon 1882-1968

Postby midshipman » Mon May 22, 2017 2:45 pm

I am continuing to research my Hacon family ancestors but currently having difficulty with Walter Frederick Hacon.
From his Royal Naval Reserve record I have a birthplace of Norwich, Norfolk, plus a birth date of 27th August 1882. In the First World War he served as Deck Hand DA6745, HMS Lavatera. He married Mary Ann Doyland in Grimsby in 1911 and died 1968 in Lincolnshire.
Even though I have a birthplace and birth date I cannot find a supporting record or any family details. I would like to discover his parents/siblings.
Can any member please guide or advise?

Many thanks Mo and Meekhcs. Searched the 1939 Registry and found Walter F. Hason, date of birth 1882, living in Hull, East Yorkshire.

Many thanks Sylcec but believe the possible Australia connection is a red herring.
