    • According to the CWGC website Alfred is buried at Honnechy.
      The photo I have of the grave has on it  "Ypres Salient, Belgium" but this is preceeded by "British Association" - I think it means that it was the address of the British Association, not that the location of the grave is in question.

      Despite the large gap between their third and fourth children, the 1911 census as well as the birth registration index (GRO online index, with mother's maiden names) suggests there were no others.
      Margaret's entry in the 1911 census shows that in her marriage she had 4 children, 3 of whom were still living.
      (Checked GRO online index for any Hemmings with mother's maiden name of Swan - exact spellings, also looked at all Hemmings born in St Saviour RD)
