* BODLEY
George [Edward]
Private 20248, 7th Battalion, Northamptonshire Regiment. Died 18 August 1916. Aged 28. Born Wappenham, NJorthamptonshire, enlisted London. No known grave. Commemorated on Thiepval Memorial, Somme, France. Pier and Face 11 A and 11 D.

Andrew Curry researched this man and these are his notes:

So I decided to put the name Bodley into a search of the 1911 census with a Norfolk location. To my surprise up popped Marian Annie Bodley born in Slapton, Northants and living with William and Mary Burn her Uncle and Aunt in Cromer. This was too bigger coincidence as George Edward's father was from Slapton. Next I searched Marian Annie's details for the 1901 census and found the Bodley family consisting of John J Bodley, Ellen M his wife. Most significantly a George E Bodley, aged 12, was listed with a birth place of Wappenham, Northants. This matched the details in SD database for birth place and his aged in 1901 suggested he was born in 1888/9 making him 27/28 in 1916 which matches the CWGC entry. So connection between George and Cromer had been found as his Uncle or Aunt lived there, but why was his sister living with them?

The relationship between Marian and the Burn family was easy to work out as Mary Elizabeth Burn was born in Caistor, Norfolk, while Marian and George's mother Ellen was born in California, Norfolk. They had to be sisters. Checking the marriage records I found in 1885 John Joseph Bodley married Ellen Maria Greenside in the Great Yarmouth, Norfolk registration district. In 1886 William John B Burn married Mary Elizabeth Greenside in the Great Yarmouth, Norfolk registration district.

This did still not explain why Marian was living with her Aunt's family. The answer lay in the cemetery in Slapton. John Joseph Bodley died in 1905 and his death agrees with the CWGC entry for George Edward. Ellen Maria died the following year 1906. See attachments 6-8. I then tried to find the family members from the 1901 census on the 1911 census but apart from Marian I could only find her sister Lucy. By 1911 Lucy was 12 and living in an orphanage in Northampton. The rest of the family including George Edward seem to have avoided the census.

In conclusion it would appear that with the Slapton connection broken and George Edward's aunt and sister living in Cromer they wanted some way of remembering him. Especially as there was no grave to visit on one of the 1920s Royal British Legion pilgrimages and Thiepval Memorial was not completed until 1932. Although George's connection with the town was at best only tenuous his aunt and sister must have convinced the authorities to add his name to the memorial. This must have been the case as all George's details from SD and CWGC data bases connect with the census records and his father's death record. The link to Cromer while initially coming through his sister Marian was reinforced by the marriage records of his mother and aunt. I hope you agree that the Bodley George entry for Cromer is in fact George Edward Bodley of A Company, 7th Bn Northamptonshire Regiment - attachment 9-10.
