Hello, Can anyone help? I am trying to research 1504, Sergeant Patrick Joseph Buckley who served with 1/13th at Kambula and Ulundi and noticed a photo of his grave posted on this site posted in 2010. What is more intriguing is that it had a photo of Patrick inset in the top right corner? Does anyone have this photo, and any information about Patrick? Many thanks, Paul

Hello Paul,

I took the photo of the grave in Arnos Vale Cemetery, Bristol, but the photo of Sgt. Buckley came from the 'Keynsham Light Horse' - forum member Rai England is a member of the KLH so he may be able to help with this (from memory, the original is of a family group).

Regards,

Tim

Hello Tim,

Many thanks for responding so quickly and I'm very grateful for the information. I will try and contact Rai England and ask for help. What prompted you to find Patrick Buckley's grave? Regards, Paul

Hello Paul,

'The Keynsham Light Horse' had a fantastic website some years ago recording hundreds of Anglo-Zulu War graves including that of Patrick Buckley - they also brought out a publication called 'But Burdens Shouldered' (Tim Day) which included details of a few of these memorials. Buckley was included, & so I paid a visit using the information to take a photo.

Here's some additional info which may be of interest;

PATRICK JOSEPH BUCKLEY
1504, Lance Corporal, 1/13th Light Infantry

Born: Cork, Ireland c.1849
Married: Ann Murphy, 18th Oct 1879
Service: Attesting in Jan 1867 he served in Gibraltar, Malta & South Africa before being discharged in 1896.
Zulu War: Present at Khambula & Ulundi
Died: 12th July 1926 at 207 Clarence Rd, Bedminster, Bristol
Buried: Holy Souls RC Cemetery, Arnos Vale, Bath Rd, Bristol.

Regards,

Tim

I am extremely grateful for your time in scanning and posting this information. I could not have imagined a few days ago I would be looking at Patrick Buckley's attestation and service papers. Thank You. Regards Paul

A couple more documents. First the 1901 census which shows Patrick and family in Bristol. He is 51 and a Pensioner Recruiting Sergeant. He would have been payed Two Shillings and Sixpence by the army for each recruit - nice little earner.

Then the 1911 census. Still in Bristol and now an Army Pensioner and Lodging House Keeper. Note that he and Ann had ten children, eight of whom survived.

All the best.

Hi Steve,

I just wanted to thank you for posting the census and for the information. I am truly grateful. It is quite extraordinary how much you can learn in a few days by asking the right people.

Regards

Paul
