James Leslie Wilkinson was the son of William Wilkinson and Sarah Ann Hill who married at St Mary’s Church, Arnold in March 1880. Sarah Ann already one child: Samuel Arthur A. [Hill] (b.1877). Their other children were: John Daniel (b.1880), Elizabeth Rebecca (b.1881), Thomas Robert (b.1884), William (b.1886), James Leslie (b.1888), Samuel Horace (b.1890), Lawrence (b.1895) and Stanley Neville (b.1900). The Wilkinson family lived at: Calverton Road, Arnold [C.1881]; 9 Wilton Road, Radford [C.1891]; 13 Dorking Road, Radford [C.1901 & CWGC]. William Wilkinson who worked as a framework knitter, died at Nottingham, aged 73, in 1924. His widow, Sarah Ann, died at Nottingham in 1939, aged 84. Some one called Leslie Wilkinson was staying with Harry Hooton at 2 Arthur Terrace, Storer Street, Nottingham at the time of the 1911 census. Beyond stating he was 21 years of age and born in Nottingham Mr Hooton proffered no other details about this individual. Whether this was actually James Leslie Wilkinson is unclear. It would appear that in 1914 James L. Wilkinson married Margaret Blease at Glossop in Derbyshire. The post-war address for Margaret Wilkinson, his widow, as given in CWGC records was 3 Finn St., North Circular Road, Dublin. What subsequently happened to her is unknown.
