    Can you help with further Military service for William Hanson please?
    I have him is shown on the Absent Voters List of South Leverton, Nottinghamshire,1918, serving with the British Army, as L/Cpl, 12172 M.F.P. No. 3 Traffic Control.
    I also have the 1926 electoral register for South Leverton, showing Francis Henry Hanson and Emily Hanson and the 1928 and 1929 showing Emily Hanson only.
    That's all I can positively identify on further cross referencing. Thank you and kind regards,

    Thank you. I obviously didn’t search correctly on this site, Ancestry, Family search or other local electoral roles. Kind regards

    The one with him being in the Grenadier Guards is him, his attestation papers can be viewed on FMP using the search terms:-

    John William Hanson
    year of birth 1885
    Location Lincolnshire

    He was a Farm Labourer prior to joining up.

    Thank you, I have a John William Hanson was born in 1885, in the east Retford District with his mother's maiden name was Newstead. I also have John W. Hanson married Catherine E Toulson in 1914 in the East Retford District.
    At the moment cannot find him listed on a Census that matches this information, any advice please. Kind regards.

    Thank you for your replies.
    No, not sure but I have him is shown on the Absent Voters List of South Leverton, Nottinghamshire,1918, serving with the British Army, as L/Cpl, 12172 M.F.P. No. 3 Traffic Control.
    I also have the 1926 Electoral Register for South Leverton, showing Francis Henry Hanson and Emily Hanson and the 1928 and 1929 E.R's. showing Emily Hanson only. There are no other Hanson's listed on the E.R, for South Leverton. No doubt a Census record will show his birth and residency place but cannot find one that provides the cross reference. Kind regards.
