Tracing Your Roots To Gallipoli

Remembering some of the Bolton men who lost their lives in the Gallipoli Campaign of 1915

Herbert Dean

Herbert was the son of John Owen Dean, a general porter and latterly a lodging house proprietor, and Mary Dean.

He first appeared on the 1891 Census living at 8 and 10 Brown Street Bolton ('A Licensed Lodging House') with his parents and siblings James Edward b.1879 and Mary Agnes b 1880. John Dean was head of the household although his occupation was listed as general porter.

By 1901 the family were still living in the same house although Herbert's mother had died by that point.

His father was then listed as being the proprieter of the Lodging House while his brother James was working as an insurance clerk and his sister Mary was a dressmaker.

Mary Agnes died in 1902.

James married in 1902 and by 1911 was a soap salesman in Manchester.

In 1911 Herbert was serving as a Private soldier in the Lancashire Fusiliers in India.

Herbert was killed in action.
