Private WOODCOCK, EDWARD WALTER
Service Number 6096087
6th Btn. Queen’s Own Royal West Kent Regiment
Son of Charles and Emma Woodcock, of Birling, Kent.
Would appear the family started in Hollingbourne where Edward was born in 1916 but children are registered here from 1920 – so somewhere between 1916-1920 they moved here and as you can see from his Dads will, there were still here in 1959 and Mum, Emma doesn’t die till 1971 and death registered Maidstone, so I wonder if she’s in the graveyard at the church….
Brother to Herbert (Fred) and Percy. Both lived in East Malling all their lives, died in the 1980’s.
