First Name:

The Cave / Clark Family in India

Updated January 4, 2001

About Our Family Research

My grandfather served with the Kings Riffles/9 Durgas Regiment in India His name was George Fredrick Al(l)ington-Clark (There may be a possibility that the Alington may have been dropped). He married my grandmother Ursula Hyde-Barker who was born in India. They had three children born in India Doreen, Rita, Eileen (mother) and lastly Dar(r)el. My mother Eileen Maud Alington-Clark was born 24/9/1921? in India, she died in Gibraltar at a military hospital on 4/12/1953. She was educated in a school at Shimla in India and married my father Sydney William Cave (born in Birmingham UK in 11/4/1912) at the church in Fort Stanley in India. My Grandfather, for reason unknown to me, left my Grandmother Ursula when she was 2 months pregnant with her last child, Darrel who was born after my mother in India. Ursula remained in India with her children and worked as a school Matron in a military school in Shimla My grandfather who was a serving British Officer suddenly returned to the UK, leaving his family in India and was never heard from again ( I understand that he was repatriated back to Uk on as an ex-serviceman). I would dearly like to know about his military career and what happened to him. Also where he is buried. If anyone has any information on any of the above I would like to solve the family history. I will be grateful for any help as I am a novice at this sort of thing.
