    • From PR entry (image on FMP, viewed 22 Mar 2019)
    Gender Male 
    Military Service WW1 
    • George was in the army at some time prior to 1920, at least during part of WW1, as there is a medal card for him and as it was returned veterans that the British goverrnent targeted in 1920 when recruiting to reinforce the Royal Irish Constabulary, which had been much reduced and demoralised by the Irish War of Independence.
      (Royal Irish Constabulary service record, which shows him as 'Carter, Ex Soldier')
    Also known as George TINSLEY 
    Occupation Bef 1920 
    Carter 
    • (Royal Irish Constabulary service record, which shows him as 'Carter, Ex Soldier')
    Occupation From 28 Sep 1920 to 2 Feb 1922  Roscommon, Co. Roscommon, Ireland See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Royal Irish Constabulary 
    • His service record shows he was transferred to Roscommon on 29 Oct 1920.
      It also shows he was recommended by 'R.O. Liverpool' which I think must mean 'Recruiting Officer in Liverpool'. His native county was shown as Lancashire, and his dob 14 July 1900. His height was 5 ' 7½''. His time in the constabulary ended when the constabulary was disbanded, having served for 1 year and 4 months, earning £234 pensionable pay and so a pension of £50-14-0 was recommended.

      Wikipedia article about the Royal Irish Constabulary.

      (I'm showing Roscommon as meaning the town, but it could mean the county).
    Occupation 1924 
    Coachman 
    • At the time of his marriage
    Residence 1939  9, Ancroft Road, Huyton, Lancashire, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • With his wife and two children in the 1939 register.
      By the time of the 1939 register his parents had 3 children aged 8 to 14. Old enough to have left school and been out at work, may have been a live-in domestic or similar, but I can't be sure.
      In addition, the first entry in the household is closed, apparently accidentally instead of his son as the transcribed details on FMP are for this George not his son.

    • GRO ref: Hanna, Eileen to Gotham, George q3 1924 Liverpool RD 8b 105
      Actual date and place from FamilySearch; bride shown as Ellen on FamilySearch. I think the name probably was Ellen, as there is a death of an Ellen Gotham, but no re-marriage or death of an Eileen.
      There is also a birth to fit, in 1898, in Liverpool RD. The only registration of a birth of an Eileen Hanna, 1890-1910, was in 1910, in West Derby RD. Although this is the right area it is extremely unlikely she would have married aged just 14.
