Census Details 1891 - 2 years old Herbert H is living a 30 Sewells Walk, Lincoln with grandparents Richard Hogburn (61), Mary Ann Hogburn (53) and Aunts Minnie Hogburn (12), Annie Crossley (27).

1901 - 12 years old Herbert H is living at 42 Eccleston Street, Prescot with widowed father Henry W G (36) and three siblings: Walter J C (11), Edith A (10), Frederick C (8)

Also at the address are sisters and brother to Henry W.G Emily E Hind (22), Alfred P Hind (19) and Alice Hind (16).

The Kelly's Directory of Prescot for 1913 listed Henry Hind as a Hardware Dealer of 62 & 64 Eccleston Street.

This corresponds with the 1911 census entry for Henry, showing him at this address aged 46 with his wife Elizabeth (40) and their children Herbert (22), a Teaching Assistant, Walter (21), Edith (20) and Frederick (18).

This census shows Herbert as a native of Lincoln.

Service Details

Brother of Frederick Charles Hind

Inscribed on the panel of the civic memorial which lists those men who died after the initial panels had been inscribed, this man is listed as 'Hind, H. H.'.

Checking the online CWGC register, one 'H H Hind' is reported. He died on 7th February 1921 and is buried at Eccleston (Christ Church) Churchyard. I think that his South Lancs Regiment service number of 4960 was issued around February or March of 1916.

Checking at the churchyard, his headstone (pictured below), shows him as 'Herbert H Hind', the husband of Lily Hind, also showing his age as 32, therefore being born sometime around 1889.

His service is commemorated on the Methodist Church Roll of Honour

At this point in time, I have no details of Herbert's service or the reason for his death.
