  1. There were /are crossinggums and crossinghams in bexhill .Henry was a crossingham. He is listed as such on bexhill war memorial. Hill/road listed became Wrestwood road.

  2. Further to previous: check out bexhill roll of honour. Info about Henry states 1 Wrestwood road. This was later demolished to build Auckland house,a home for the elderly. This itself was later developed for the same

  3. To kieron. I would now like to change my mind ,re: crossingham. Although the memorial states that spelling,newspaper article shows crossinggum ,as does the article re: Ben’s wedding. They were definitely brothers ,as listed as eldest son and youngest son of mrs. Crossinggum of 1, two houses, paddocks hill,(later Westwood road) bexhill_on_sea.

  4. To kieron.sorry,but on checking again,Ben’s just says mrs. Crossinggum of bexhill,but does also state,brother of henry. Also,I have put Westwood road,should be wrsstwood.

  5. No problem! Thanks for confirming the link between Ben and Henry. It can be difficult to unpick these things so long after the events took place. Kind Regards, Kieron
