Pre War

Son of Albert and Florence (nee HOWE) HARVEY of Hertford.

His parents married 29 August 1896 at St James’, High Wych, Herts.  Albert died 1954 aged 80; Florence died 1956 aged 80; both in the Hertford district.

Herbert was born 26 December 1896 in High Wych, and baptised there 14 February 1897. He attended High Wych J.M.I. School from 13 May 1901 to 14 June 1909.

On the 1901 Census, aged 4 he lived in Sayes Park Lodge, High Wych, with his parents and one sibling.  On the 1911 Census, a farm labourer aged 14, he lived in Friar's Lane Sawbridgeworth, Herts, with his parents and four siblings.

Wartime Service

He enlisted in Hertford, and was formerly Private 6062 Hertfordshire Regiment.  


He was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was killed in action.  

Additional Information

Unfortunately, Herbert’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
