    • William and John were both boarding with James Reeve, having lost both parents by 1903. 18 Lamb Street is also the address given by Ada, on her marriage earlier in the year.

      John was probably waiting to join the Royal Navy as he joined just 5 days after the Census.

    Engine Fireman (RN) 
    • On signing up John was posted first to HMS Vivid, the Royal Navy training station at Plymouth, before being assigned to the HMS Cornwall in April 1912. HMS Cornwall (1902-1920) was the 4th Royal Naval ship to carry the name and was a 9000 ton armoured cruiser launched at Pembroke in 1902 and had a crew of 678. Serving as a stoker it would have been his job to help keep the 31 Babcock & Wilcox boilers loaded with Coal. These in turn powered the two 4-cylinder triple-expansion steam engines, each driving one shaft, which produced a total of 22,000 horsepower (16,000 kW) and gave a maximum speed of 23 knots (43 km/h; 26 mph).

      On the outbreak of war in 1914 she was despatched to West Africa to intercept German merchant shipping. She proceeded to the Falklands and on 8 December 1914 engaged German light cruisers, sinking the LEIPZIG as part of the campaign known as the battle of the Falklands.

      Returning to West Africa until June 1915, when she was sent to support the Gallipoli campaign. The following October she went back to the East Indies and China Stations to protect Allied shipping from surface raiders. Finally returning to the UK in 1917 she was refitted and escorted convoys between Canada and the UK. She paid off early in 1919, and it would appear John resigned from the Navy at the same time doing another posting at HMS Vivid before returning to Liverpool.

      John Edward was awarded the Star, Victory, British War Medals for his service.
