Notes for Henry Lewis KNIBBS:

I suspect it was this Henry we see in 1911, recorded as Lance Corporal Harry Knibbs, 2nd Battalion, The Queens Regiment:
Harry Knibbs 22 UnM Lance Corporal 2nd Batt Queen's Regt

I'm not aware of a Harry Knibbs born in Mile End in 1889, hence the conjecture.

We see Henry and Ellen living at 14 Ashen Drive, Dartford, Kent, at the time of the 1939 Register.
