Nelson, A

Connection with Collingham, Linton or Micklethwaite and reason for inclusion on this web site

  • Named on printed lists of villagers in The Wetherby News or Collingham Parish Magazine

In January 1915, the Collingham Parish Magazine published a list of the men of the village who had enlisted and were serving their country. One name on that list is A Nelson. However, we have not been able to identify this man, either in the census records of Collingham in 1901 or 1911 and can find no trace of a service record for a man with that name who we connect to Collingham.

If you have any information that could help us to identify this man, we would like to hear from you.
