Harry was born in Stamford in 1900 and in  1911 he was living with his widowed father at 27 St Paul’s Street.  At that time six children were still at home. His eldest sister, Sarah, and two of her children were visiting from their home in Toxteth (Liverpool) . Isiah was a fitter’s apprentice, Albert, an elder brother was a moulder, Mary Jane was a housekeeper at home and Kate was a servant. Brother Charles Henry was an errand boy and Harry, aged 11, was at school. They also shared their home with a boarder, Thomas Hanwell ( a labourer).

In 1901 the family had lived at 2 Laxton’s Court, St Leonard’s Street, when ten children were at home. At this time their father was a foundry labourer. On the 1901 Census the only ‘Harry’ listed was ‘John Harry Wade, grandson’, also born in 1900. Researching possible grandchildren has not been successful.

No information of military service has been found so he was probably too young to have enlisted.
