Hello DAVID-LL

What was your grandfathers brothers Christian name/s and surname?

The reason I ask is, could they have been half brothers with different surnames?

Regards

Martin.

Hello again David

I have found a PDF file, The London Gazette, Dated March 21st 1879. It shows a Lt George Stanhope Banister, to be promoted to captain, vice J.F. Caldwell. 5th Feb 1879.

They might have mis-spelled the Surname (no d in Standhope), but it seems a strange co-incidence to be promoted on the 5th Feb, yet you say he died on the 5th Feb. scratch

Hope this helps in some way.

Martin.
