Hand 6035DA. H.M. Trawler "Thomas Cornwall., Royal Naval Reserve. Died Tuesday
29 October 1918 when his ship was involved in a collision. Son of Clement Rudram
and Harriet Lucy Elizaveth Goose (formerly Rudram), of Ingham, Stalham, Norwich.
He was born on 26 April 1896 in Ingham and baptised there on 13 Sep 1896. He joined
the RNR on 29 March 1915. He gave his address as Gurney's Cottage, Ingham and
his next of kin as his mother Lucy. He was 5ft 6in tall, 36 in chest with a fresh
complexion and grey eyes. He mobilised before receiving any training and was a
deck hand (service no - DA6035) on HM Trawler "Thomas Cornwall". However
since he was mobilised into the RNR he must have been a sailor by trade and as
he went to trawler rated as deck-hand he was probably a fisherman. Unfortunately
as he had no peacetime service there is no indication of what boats he worked
in on his RNR record card. (RN and RNR records are much easier to read than the
army ones and 80% weren't destroyed in WWII). His mother was now given as Sydney
Rd, Ingham. Commemorated: CHATHAM NAVAL MEMORIAL, Kent, United Kingdom. Panel
