Henry Butler was first identified in the Absent Voter Records for Abbots Langley for Autumn 1918 and Spring 1919 where his address was given at Nash Mills. He did not appear in any other Parish records.
Henry was born in the summer of 1898 at Apsley End, near Hemel Hempstead. He was one of two children born to Joseph and Rebekah Butler. In the 1911 Census Joseph was employed as a Stoker at a Paper Mill – presumably John Dickinson’s. At that time the family lived at Ebberns Road, Hemel Hempstead.
It is not known when Henry joined up, however he was demobilised from the 10th Battalion of the London Rifle Brigade in 1919.
Henry Butler survived the War.
