Edward Lister Bramwell

Florence May Upton (no photo) was born in 1887, in Hackney in London. How they came to meet, we do not know yet, but we'll keep looking.

Edward and Florence were married on the 28th August 1904 at St Johns Church in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.


WORLD WAR 1

Edward served with the Royal Army Service Corp during World War 1, seeing action in France from May 1916 until October 1916 and again from January 1917 to April 1917
where he suffered a severe gunshot wound to the left thigh. He was serving with the Royal Army Medical Corp when he was demobilized and transferred to Army Reserve in August 1919.

Florence passed away at the very young age of 49 on the 22 September 1936, no doubt in part because of the loss of so many children at such a young age.

At the time of the 1939 Register, taken before the start of World War II, Edward was residing at Richmond Avenue Islington North London with his daughter Florence and her family, husband Frank and their daughter Joan.

Edward passed away on the 18th August 1963 at the City Hospital in St Albans Hertfordshire UK at the age of 85.
