    WW1 Places and Battles..... Help please

    Need some help in identifying places and battle names of WW1 as not sure if these names are correct..... Epsey & Dardenall

    I've just been informed from my new found relative that a couple of my Gran's siblings died.......

    one, Thomas Brady was gassed at...... Epsey?
    He died in a sanatorium in Dublin in 1918 or 1919.

    two, Edward aka Ned Brady died in 1915 in a WW1 battle ..Dardenall?

          Teresa,

          if you search on this site you might find more info about them

          :: CWGC ::

          its the War Graves site, & it gives details of the soldiers killed in battle.

            Hi,

            My grandfather died in Gallipoli, Turkey, the Dardanelles was the stretch of water between Turkey and another country. My grandfather is commemorated on the Helles Memorial in Turkey, his body was never found.

              Could that be Ypres - I believe its pronounced Eepps (but I could be wrong)

                    Thanks for all your replies.

                    I've checked out the CWCG site and there are several Edward, and E. Brady's and T and Thomas Brady's of unknown age.....that could be them.

                    None of the ones that give names of parents etc., seem to match though.

                    I might see if I can get the death certificate of Thomas Brady that died in a sanatorium in Dublin 1918/19.

                    Having no idea of his birth year..it might prove difficult and I have no idea if he was married either. The only positive thing is, I know who his parents were!

                    My poor Gt Grandparents not only lost 10 out of 18 children before 1911 but they then lost 2 more because of WW1 and yet another married son died in 1919 leaving 2 young children fatherless.

                    I'm absolutely gutted at discovering all of this.

                      Family history contains many surprises and shocks. I think dead children are the worst.

                        There is a Thomas Brady on the WW1 records on Ancestry. Thomas Brady born 1892 St Thomas Dublin, next of kin John Brady of 15 Bolton Street, Dublin. Royal Dublin Fusiliers, discharged on the 1/12/1914 through ill health. Regimental No.12339. I don't think he would be on the CWG site as he did not die in action.

                        I hope this is of some help.

                          That's interesting. Thomas's father was Michael Brady but he had a brother John too.

                          Bolton Street features in our Pollard family records too but don't know if the Brady's were living there....always possible of course.

                                "one, Thomas Brady was gassed at...... Epsey?
                                He died in a sanatorium in Dublin in 1918 or 1919."

                                So he wouldnt BE on a roll of honor then?? as he died after he came home? praps the gassing effected him so much that he went mad????

                                  I don't think he would be mad because he died in a sanatorium! These places existed for people with TB. Many men who were gassed in the Great War had respiratory problems. He may have died of other war-related injuries, or of something completely unconnected.

                                    I shall have to see if the Dublin records office can find Thomas's death certificate...just hope there aren't too many Thomas Bradys dying in Dubllin City 1818/19.

                                    Have his parents living in Leeson St, Dublin in 1911 but don't know if he was married or single then as he wasn't living with his parents.

                                    Can't locate a suitable Thomas Brady on the 1911 Dublin City Census as I still don't know when he was actually born, but some time between 1873-1900.

                                    I WILL get to resolving the mystery of my Gran's 17 siblings if it's the last thing I do!!!

                                      If he died as a result of the war, he could still be on the CWGC. Hubby's great uncle died in Glasgow in WW2, but was still on there.

                                        Hi Lynn

                                        I've already checked out the CWGC and there are several Thomas Bradys on there that could be him but not knowing his year of birth is the problem.
