Note on Marriage
GRO Army index shows Leslie H W Axtell marrying a Reed in 1941 in Bombay, but looking up Reed for 1941 and Bombay lists a Robert Reed marrying a Henson and no mention of an Axtell in the Reed section. Needs checking out. [Jon Axtell]
Note on Husband: Leslie Harry Westwood AXTELL (1)
Annie Singleton had name as Leslie Harry W Axtell. National Archives record of his medal card has his name as Leslie Henry Westwood Axtell. The Westwood matches up with the W from Annie's records and also matches up with his younger bortherJack Howell Westwood Axtell. [Jon Axtell]
Annie Singleton had Harry as a son of Ferderick Axtell and Rose Mary Howell. However the Oxfordshire Family History Society transcription of the St Paul baptisms shows Florence Louis to be his mother, no father mentioned. Census is probably hiding the fact that Florence was an unmarried mother. Relationships adjusted accordingly. Proof will come from birth certificate. Needs checking. [Jon Axtell]
MILITARY: Medal card from WWI

CENSUS: 1901 Census: Staying with his grandparent's and aunt Florence, possibly because their (unamed in 1901 census) brother has just been born and their parents Frederick and Rose need some space.
EMAIL: From Nicky Axtell Seppala
I have just happened upon (via my eldest son) the information regarding Leslie Harry Westwood-Axtell. Leslie Westwood-Axtell was my grandfather who married a young widow named Cecily Cahill in Bombay sometime before WWII. I do not remember any exact dates of anything!
I hope this is of interest to you.
