Horace Norman Dudley Evans: Monday 3rd May 1915

Horace enlisted in Westminster and became Private 2188 with the 3rd Batt. Royal Fusiliers.  He was killed in action and is commemorated on the Menin Gate.  Probate was granted to his mother for £212/17/3.

Horace does not appear to be related to Eric.  Horace was the son of Ellen Emma Evans of 30 Broderick Road.  His father must have died before 1901 when the family were living at 137 St James Road. Horace was born in Balham and was one of nine children including Frederick Allen, an audit clerk in an estate office, born in Forest Gate and Guy Herbert, a clerk in an architects office and later an insurance ledger clerk, born in Dulwich, Bernard Saxby, who like Horace was a Lloyd’s broker’s clerk an older sister Helen Grace who was a private secretary in an insurance office, a sister Freda 3 years younger born in Clapham and one who died young.  The family had certainly moved around.  In 1911 they were living at 30 Wandle Road.
