Henry Ernest Needham: in 1901, he was a ‘wharfinger clerk,’ living at Foots Cray Cray Road (?) in Sidcup, Kent, England. His birth was registered there 25 October 1884. His brothers and sisters were William Asa, 19, a carpenter, Frederick Charles, 18, a builder’s clerk, Edith Mary, 14, draper’s apprentice, and Sydney John, 5. There was also a visitor living with them at the time, Lucy D. Roberts, 42, who lived on her own means. His parents were William, a policeman born in Stamford, Lincolnshire in mid-1858, and Rebecca Needham (nee Godber; born 5 May 1857 at Ilkestone, Derbyshire). His parents had married 1 January 1880 in the Pancras district of London in the Church of England tradition. In 1911, he lived at 57 Claremont Road, Moss Side, Manchester, and was listed as a builder’s clerk. The Cunard Line listed his point of origin as New York. It is possible he was killed on 4 July 1944 (civilian war dead).
