     Daniel Saunders Greathead was born on 16 May 1879 in Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, The entry in the family bible states his birthday was in 1879 as does the baptism record, and the entry on National Register although his birth seems not to have been registered until a year later.1,2,3,4,5,6 He was the son of Edward Turley Greathead and Mary Jane Whitehouse. He was baptised on 25 August 1879 in St George, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, the family lived in 114 Brearley Street West and his father was a bellows manufacturer.7 In the census of 3 April 1881 in 80 Lower Hockley Street, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, he was listed as the son of Edward Turley Greathead.8 In the census of 5 April 1891 in 133 Lennox Street, Aston, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, he was listed as the son of Edward Turley Greathead Daniel was a scholar.9 In the census of 31 March 1901 in 122 Bubury Street, Aston Manor, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, he was listed as the brother in law of Walter William Arrowsmith Daniel was a gold jewellery repairer.1,10 He married Alice Williams, daughter of Edward Williams, on 11 April 1903 in St Paul, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, after the banns had been read. The ceremony was witnessed by Walter Arrowsmith and Mary Helen Seeley. Daniel gave his address as 48 Clifford Street, Birmingham and Alice gave 51 Alma Street, Birmingham. Daniel was a jeweller.11,12,5 In 1905 when their son Arthur was born the familylived at Back 38 Clifford Street, Aston Manor.

A further child had died before 1911. I have assumed this to be Daniel Edward but have no proof as yet. The family lived in a four roomed home.15 There is a lovely picture of Alice and Daniel and three children. Arthur, Ivy and baby Walter, sadly baby Daniel had died in infancy. Presumably taken around 1912.14 Daniel signed up for short service on 20 May 1916 and gave his occupation as a jeweller. He was 37 years old, five feet one and a half inches tall with a chest measurement of 34 inches. His wife Alice was his next of kin and lived at 7 House, Severn Grove, Lozells Street, Lozells, Birmingham.
