On Ancestry, do you know about this, if you don't you need to check the details as it could be rubbish
"Arthur Robinson was born in Manchester England in 1891 the son of John and Emma Robinson. He married Mary Bostock in Manchester in 1914. In December 1914 their son Harold was born.
Arthur was sent to France in late 1915 before his second child was born. In 1916 a daughter Elizabeth was born. Arthur was killed on the battle field in 1916, having never seen his new daughter Elizabeth. Mary never remarried and brought up her son Harold and daughter Elizabeth (Bett) by herself.
Mary was a remarkable women, she had lost both her husband and son in two world wars, but she remained a kind, jolly person, with a great sense of humour. Harolds son Trevor, Mary's grandson, married Olive in the 1960's, but unfortunatley they never had any children. Prior to her death in the 1970's Mary travelled to Malta to see Harolds grave. Harolds widow Dorothy, his son Trevor and Trevors wife Olive, travelled with Mary to Malta. Sadley Mary never lived to see the grave of her husband Arthur who was buried in France. Mary's daughter Elizabeth married Jack Dawson in 1939, they had two daughters Pamela and Susan, Susan died when she was very young.
Mary had a large extented family, which I think helped her a great deal in getting over her grief. Mary's family was the Bostock family of Newton Heath Manchester England. Most of her family, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and other relatives lived in the same street or very close by. The Bostock family orginally came from Knutsford in Cheshire, where Mary was born. The family moved to Manchester in the early 1900's.
And they have him as
Lancashire Fusilers 11th BN Private 23280. Died in France 20 August 1916, buried in Ovillers Cemetry France, grave No.V11.Q.4
So that makes all they have suspect!
