Person Exhibits

Frances English circa 1937

Parents

Family

Family: Alfred Herbert Roby (b. 23 February 1873, d. 23 May 1955)

Main Events

  • Name: Frances English was also known as Frances Roby.
  • Biography: I have the original funeral documentation supplied by the undertakers, Thompsons ( Rimmers ) Ltd, 299 Kensington, Liverpool 7.
  • Birth: She was born on 30 January 1875 in 22 Barmouth Street, St. Martin, Liverpool.
  • Baptism: She was baptised on 9 February 1875 in St. Albans RC Church, Liverpool, I note that she is referred to as "Francesca English".
  • Confirmation: She was confirmed on 9 December 1886 in Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Yes, I can't believe it - confirmed in the RC Church. I see that the Nomina Patrinorum is "Maria Power". Now, who could that be ? It means "God Parent". My guess is that she is Brigida Power's unmarried sister but I cannot prove that. She certainly wasn't a practising Catholic when she lived in my home in Bowring Park towards the end of her life.
  • Occupation: She was a book binder in Liverpool in 1901.
  • Residence: She resided in 74 Butler St, West Derby, in 1905.
  • Marriage: Frances English and Alfred Herbert Roby were married on 4 February 1905 in The Registry Office, West Derby, (Reference :- REG_WD/216/132)

    Reference 8b 727 Liverpool.

    I wonder whether the marriege took place in the Registry Office because Alfred was a Protestant and Frances a Roman Catholic. I have no knowledge of the reason ... but I note that young Alfred was born 18 months later, so we can rule that one out.
  • Death: She died on 15 January 1959, at age 83, at 112 Bowring Park Avenue in Liverpool 16 The entry in the registry says that she was 83 at time of death, making her birthdate circa 1876. Cause of death : Bronchial Pneumonia.
  • Cremation: Following her death, her remains were cremated on 19 January 1959 at the Crematorium in Anfield, Liverpool. (I have the original funeral documentation supplied by the undertakers, Thompsons ( Rimmers ) Ltd, 299 Kensington, Liverpool 7.)

  • Misc: He experienced Misc in August 1918 in Albert, France, Battle of Albert (21–23 August 1918) was the third battle by that name fought during World War I , following the First Battle of Albert and the Second Battle of Albert , with each of the series of three being fought roughly two years apart. [1] This smaller third battle was significant in that it was the opening push that would lead to the Second Battle of the Somme and involved the Australian Corps . This attack opened the advance; the main thrust was launched by the Third Army along with support from the Fourth Army . [2] The Second Battle of Bapaume , from 25 August to 3 September, was a continuation of this battle. [3]
    The attacks developed into an advance, which pushed the German 2nd Army back along a 50-mile (80 km) front line . On 22 August, the 18th (Eastern) Division took Albert, with the British and Americans advancing on Arras . [2] The following day, the Australian 1st Division , which was advancing north-east from Proyart, attacked German fortifications around Chuignes , and succeeded in capturing the town .
    On 29 August, during the Second Battle of Bapaume, the town of Bapaume fell into New Zealand hands. This resulted in an advance by the Australian Corps , who crossed the Somme River on 31 August and broke the German lines during the Battle of Mont St. Quentin . [2] The Westheer (German armies on the Western Front) was pushed back to the Hindenburg Line , from which they had launched their spring offensive. [ Link citation needed ].
  • Milit-End: He was discharged from the armed forces on 23 March 1919. Private Roby - #266523 - Disembodiment - discharged from The Somerset Regiment L 9.

    In the military sense disembodiment usually means separation of the body of troops as in disbanding rather than the philosophical sense of separation of
    the soul from the body.

    During wars, regiments of the British Army generally raise extra battalions above the usual one or two in peacetime. The battalion is the fighting unit of infantry, commanded by a Lieutenant Colonel and consisting of 600 or more men. In WW1 many regiments had 10 or more battalions. It is easy to understand that a good deal of time was needed to reduce the army to peacetime strength.

    The four options mean something like this

    Discharge - Discharge of the individual soldier.
    Transfer to the Reserve - This speaks for itself.
    Disembodiment - Separation of the man from the battalion
    Demobilisation - Removal of the battalion from the active list and disbanding.

    However, I note that he was discharged on medical grounds, with a rupture retaine by a truss and a condition described as "chrondroma rib", 20%.4
  • Occupation: He was a Grain Porter at Liverpool Grain & Transit Company in Coburg Dock, Liverpool, in 1921.

Main Events

  • Biography: Uncle Alf was a favourite of mine. He saw me as a "Roby" rather than a "Snelson", most likely because we always got on very well, in fact for some unkown reason, I think he had a soft spot for me. Must have been the nose !

    I think at one time, he was working with Lobitos, an American oil company. Later, he retired; I think he might have taken an early shower and was perhaps retrenched. In any case, he opened or bought a sweet shop somewhere in the Wirral - perhaps near Prenton where he lived.

    He was a keen golfer and I am sure that he followed rugby union and cricket quite closely. It's a pity he's still not around, because I am sure he would have enjoyed a few digs about the the shabby state of English cricket and rugby, compared to the Australian !

    It was Uncle Alf who rang me in New Zealand in 1975, and told me of the death of my father. I am sure that was not an easy thing to do, but I will always remember his words.

    He didn't mind a pint or two, and was always good company - I liked him very much, and was very sorry to hear that he died shortly after I saw him in 1981.

    He had not been well for some time.
