Rogers, Henry Liam

It’s difficult to follow this soldier’s story. His name causes some problems as he seems to have been known as Harry. The 1891 census of Bangor Is y Coed lists two Harry Rogers. They were living at the home of Thomas Hodnett 66 an agricultural labourer and his wife Ann Hodnett.  There is a 29 year old Harry Rogers – a coal miner born in Bangor, Flintshire and there is an 11 year old Harry Rogers grandson also born in Bangor.

It has not proved possible so far to locate him on any other census.

UK Soldiers who Died in The Great War 1914 -19 accessible on confirms all the regimental details above and adds that he enlisted in Wrexham.

There is an index card for him in the Flintshire Roll of Honour at the County Record Office in Hawarden. It says his name was Henry Leo Rogers and gives the address Whitchurch Road Bangor. It confirms that he served in the King’s own Liverpool Regiment and his number. It tells us that he served from 6th June 1915 and was killed in action in Salonika aged 39 the date of death being given as 27th February 1917. The card names his wife as Elizabeth Rogers of Station Road Bangor.
