    I didnt know the existence of this relative but he must be my grandmothers brother in which case he had a brother named Harold who died after Galapoli near Mesopatamia. Father must be David Wiseman and Alice nee Royal.My grandmother was Helen Wiseman.This man was my fathers uncle

      Hi Shirley. Fancy you looking, this year too. I came across this info a couple weeks ago and thought there must be some mistake. Upon more research I find that yes Alfred is indeed the younger brother of Harold. How sad to lose half your children within a year, so young too.
