Harry had been a Prisoner of War in Germany returning after the cessation of hostilities. In the 1901 Census he was aged 7 and living at 68 Main Street Primethorpe. His father William Palphramand (39) was a bricklayer’s labourer, and his mother Sarah Palphramand (32) was at home. He had one brother William (11), a sister Edith (15) who was a hosiery seamer, and a baby sister Winifred (3 months). According to information I received from another researcher, his name appears on a list of prisoners-of-war as: 9th Batt Leics Palphramand H. Pte 11937 of Broughton Astley He died on the 25th June 1919 at the Leicester Royal Infirmary. His death certificate states that he was aged 25, lived in Primethorps, was a hosiery frame hand, and was ex army. The cause of death was gangrenous appendicitis. The name of the informant of his death is given as his mother Sarah Palphramand. I found his headstone in the Sutton-in-the-Elms Baptist Churchyard. It is a family headstone, and also has the names of William, Sarah and Winifred Palphramand.
