Jennings, T B F
THOMAS BENJAMIN FAKENHAM JENNINGS
Remembered with honour Watford (Vicarage Road) Cemetery: Plot D, Row 3, Grave 657.
He enlisted 2 March 1916, appears to have no medals, and was discharged 25 December 1916 due to sickness. He was issued with the Silver War Badge 12 February 1917. Unfortunately, Thomas’ Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
Son of the late Thomas and Esther Elizabeth (nee WOOD) JENNINGS; husband of Christina (nee LOFTING) JENNINGS.
His parents married 25 February 1871 at St Mary Magdelene, Woolwich, London. Thomas died (presumably), and Esther remarried 1897 in the Woolwich district to Thomas HOUCHIN. She died 1903 in the West Ham, Essex, district aged 49, and was buried 8 September in Woolwich Cemetery; Thomas died 1923 in the West Ham district aged 63.
Thomas was born 23 July 1872 in Woolwich, and baptised 6 October 1872 at St John’s, Woolwich. He married 1892 in the Woolwich district; they had two children. He died in Watford and was buried 20 September.
On the 1881 Census, aged 8 he lived in Woolwich, with his parents and one sibling. On the 1891 Census, a metal turner aged 18, he still lived in Woolwich, with his great-grandmother. On the 1901 Census, he is proving elusive. On the 1911 Census, he is possibly an armament Q.S.M. in the Army Ordnance Corps aged 38, married, stationed in Hong Kong.
