Herbert Robert Albert Barnes:

The search for 'Bob' is over thanks to the early release of the 1911 census which shows Bob's full name of Herbert Robert Albert Barnes. The Commonwealth Graves Commission website and his medal card show him as Albert Herbert Robert Barnes but it is very unlikely that there were two soldiers with that combination of first names. Interestingly his father Thomas George Barnes is listed here as George. I have seen this before and at one time believed that Thomas and George were brothers when actually the same person. Thomas George is most likely known as George to avoid confusion with his father; Thomas Barnes (1838-1917).
