Tania, you've earned legend status too! Thank you a million times over for your assistance. To say I appreciate it is an understatement.
Funnily enough I had come across the military record for Herbert while raking through the National Archives records for anything about Dorothy. I looked at the title of Hebert's and thought...that might not be a relo, wait and see! Haha!
I'm only a relative newbie to all of this, so I'm still not up to scratch with all the tricky little places to look. And having only just in the last 24 hours discovered WHO exactly I am looking for has made progress slow- until now :)
A newspaper database had never crossed my mind. Goes to show sometimes, if you need help just ask. I've sat here and frustrated myself for weeks trying to uncover anything about Dorothy's family and within a day of posting here, you guys have helped put the pieces in place.
Chocky cake for all!
Many thanks Tania *cyber high five*.
