I am tracing my family tree and my gradmother was called Elizabeth May Hagg, 1896-1983. She was called May although that was her middle name. She was born on the 5th March 1896 at rear Albert Street, Lowestoft, Suffolk . Elizabeth May’s father was William Thomas Hagg. He was a steam sawyer in a timber merchant’s woodyard. Her mother was Mary Ann Hagg, formerly Aldred. The couple lived at Rear Albert St, Lowestoft when she was born.
May married James Stone in 1921 in Lowestoft (registered at Mutford). He was born in Gisleham, Kessingland, Suffolk, on 7th September 1896. later on, he was to become a labourer or farmhand, as shown on his army papers when he enlisted at the beginning of the 1st World War in the Welsh Regiment, and later the 1/2nd Norfolk Regiment. There is also a Charles Robert Hagg, born in 1899 whose army papers I found in my grandmother's things, so he may have been my grandmother's cousin.
There were also some Haggs who lived in Norwich, and also some Haags who had a relative in Norwich, all who had men in the Norfolk Regiment in 1914-18
Does anyone know anything about these people?
