Profile

Full name Harold Payne Hardman
Born 4 April 1882 in Manchester, Lancashire [registered in Prestwich, December 1882].
Birthplace notes Birthplace is undeniably Manchester, Lamming states he was born in Kirkmanshulme, south east Manchester, but the census returns suggest different opinions.... in 1881 the family were in Newton. 1891 simply states Manchester. 1901 states Patricroft, which is in Eccles, west Manchester. To further complicate issues, Harold himself simply states in the 1911 census that he was born in the Parish of Clayton, the east of Manchester!

Census Notes

According to the 1891 census, Harold P. is the fourth of six children, to Charles R. and Elizabeth W. His father is a solicitor, and they all live at 36 Dean Street in Layton-with-Warbeck, Blackpool, with one servant.
