     Lawrence Greathead was born on 7 March 1888 in 10 The Bank, Rochester, Kent, England.2,3 He was the son of Joseph Arthur Waghorn Greathead and Mary Ann Todhunter. In the census of 5 April 1891 in 17 St Margaret Banks, Rochester, Kent, England, he was listed as the son of Joseph Arthur Waghorn Greathead.4 In the census of 31 March 1901 in 15 Old Dover Road, Greenwich, London, England, he was listed as son I assume the head of the house was their mother's brother William Todhunter, who was away that night.5 In the census of 2 April 1911 in 61 Kenilworth Road, Lanchester, Durham, England, he was listed as a boarder of Emily Gibson and her children in their eight roomed home. Laurence was a locomotive engineering worker.6 Lawrence signed up on 22 February 1915 giving his address as 10 Vanbrough Hill, Blackheath and was aged 26 and a draughtsman. His mother of the same address was given as his next of kin. He was five foot eight inches tall and had several moles on his right and left cheeks. Private No 1694 of the 3rd Berkshire Regiment worked during his service for Ponders End Shell Works leaving their service on 26 January 1917.7 On 22 June 1917 Lawrence was discharged on appointment to a temporary commission and on 23 June he was appointed 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers.
He relinquished this commission on account of ill health contracted on active service on 1 December 1919. It was a very sad story. He had absented himself from Ham Common hospital on 14 November 1918. He was apprehended on 7 December 1918. He was described a weak minded and not responsible for his actions, no charge was preferred against him.
His mother was informed that he was suffering from acute delusional insanity, she was living at 93 Savernake Road in Hampstead. Different hospitals stated different symptoms. Hallucinations of hearing, depressed and solitary. Thinking people are saying things against him and wishing to commit suicide. He received treatment in Palace Green for Neurasthenia associated with Psychasthenia systems exhaustion psychisis.
He served with the British Expeditionary Force in France and Flanders and was awarded 1914-15 Star, British Star and Victory Medals. Our men went through terrible times and many suffered terrible mental traumas. Lawrence was given the Silver War Badge number B 80600. It was issued in the United Kingdom to service personnel who had been honourably discharged due to wounds or sickness during World War I. The badge, sometimes known as the Discharge Badge, Wound Badge or Services Rendered Badge, was first issued in September 1916, along with an official certificate of entitlement.
The sterling silver lapel badge was intended to be worn in civilian clothes. It had been the practice of some women to present white feathers to apparently able-bodied young men who were not wearing the King's uniform. The badge was to be worn on the right breast while in civilian dress, it was forbidden to wear on a military uniform.
The badge bears the royal cipher of GRI (for Georgius Rex Imperator; George, King and Emperor) and around the rim "For King and Empire; Services Rendered". Each badge was uniquely numbered on the reverse. The War Office made it known that they would not replace Silver War Badges if they went missing, however if one was handed into a police station then it would be returned to the War Office. If the original recipient could be traced at his or her discharge address then the badge would be returned.8,9 Lawrence travelled to Halifax in Canada arriving on board the White Star SS Adriatic with 1265 passengers bound for New York, USA leaving Liverpool on 16 August 1928. He was described as in farming. The ships official number was 124061 with a square footage of 18915 and a tonnage of 24562, the Master was V W Hickson. He seems later to have travelled onboard SS Cedric leaving Liverpool on 12 April 1929 bound for Halifax in Canada with 645 passengers onboard. This ship was also part of the White Star line and the Master was R Hulme. Again Lawrence was described as having an occupation in farming.10,11 He married Gladys Ellen Draper in 1942.12 On 30 October 1950 Lawrence wrote from Athabaska in Alberta Canada, asking the authorities for details of his service, saying his papers were left with family in UK. He wanted to apply for a Veterens Pension.8

     Dorothy Annie Greathead was born on 12 July 1882 in Ormesby, Yorkshire, England, although school register suggests she was born in 1883. But since her mother died in 1882 I guess this is a mistake.3,4 She was the daughter of Richard Walker Greathead and Eleanor Milburn Bulmer. Annie was admitted into South Bank Wesleyan School on 19 March 1889.4 In the census of 5 April 1891 in Cold Knuckles Farm, Ormesby, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the grandaughter of Francis Greathead.5,6 In the census of 31 March 1901 in East Cauld Knuckles, Ormesby, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the daughter of Francis Greathead although I believe she was the grandaughter of Francis and so the daughter of Richard whose wife Eleanor had died in 1881 presumably in child birth.7

In the census of 2 April 1911 in South Bank Road, Cargo Fleet, Ormesby, Yorkshire, England, she was listed as the daughter of Francis Greathead Frank was a farmer living with his family in their six roomed home. All the family worked on the farm. Annie was described as a daughter but she was Richards daughter and therefore FranK's grandaughter, she was working in the dairy. Miles was described as a nephew and he also stayed in the household and worked on the farm.8 She married Obadiah Arthur Old, son of Thomas Old and Mary Jane Brellstaff, in 1914 in Holy Trinity, North Ormesby, Middlesbrough, Yorkshire, England.9 Her husband Obadiah died on 1925 in Middlesbrough, Yorkshire, England.10
