  • Notes 
    • Known as Edward. In 1911 aged 16 and employed as an errand boy. In 1914 he would have been 18 years of age. He may have served in the Royal Artillery in World War 1, as there is a record of campaign medals for a Richard Edward Hidden in WW1. However further information is required in order to confirm this, as it could also refer to his father (R010) who would have been aged 48 in 1914, or another unrelated Richard Edward aged 44 in 1914. Richard Edward mentions his medals in his will. R029 married Polly Cheshire in 1927 and they had two children who are beneficiaries in his will, dated 1957.
