Person Details
St. Saviours, Southwark, London
Henry Albert Hayman was the son of Henry Albert Hayman and Charlotte Marshall who married in St Saviours, Southwark registration district, London in 1891. In the 1901 census Henry Albert junior (b.1896), his brother, Thomas Charles (b.1900), and their mother, were all staying with her parents, William and Rebecca Marshall, at 42 Queen Street, Derby. Someone called Henry A Hayman, a married man, aged 43, born in Kennington, Surrey, and whose occupation was given as leadsman, was a boarder in a house in Lambeth. The same man might have been the pauper residing in an institution in West Ham in 1911. That same census finds Charlotte living with a James Gray at 26 Howden Road, Sheffield. They claimed to have been married for four years but their marriage actually took place the following year at Nottingham in 1912. Thomas Charles Hayman was living with his mother but Henry Albert was not there. Quite where he was living is unclear. At the time of enlistment he gave his mother’s address as 15 Back Park Street, Derby. The postwar address we have for her was 9 St Peter’s Street, Old Radford [Army records/1919 & CWGC]. Charlotte Gray died in the Basford registration district, aged 71, in 1941.
