He died 13 December 1971 for one thing. He was born in Scotland. Again there is a person with him on the tree on Ancestry. He doesn't seem to have married. I can't find him in the 1911 census :mellow:

Excellent thanks you. It's a little ambiguous to be honest. He was graduated from Sheffield University M.B. (Hons.), and 1904; M.D. (Hons.), in 1907. The next snippet of information is that he is a Captain in the R.A.M.C. (T.F.), and that he was posted to 3rd Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, 1915. I find it strange that he is not on the 1911.

Many thanks

From Life in the Workhouse..........Fir Vale

I (Dr. James Clark) was appointed Medical Officer in 1911 and took up duties in February 1912. I was given the title of Medical Superintendent in 1914 and remained at the City General until December 1949. A new children’s hospital was constructed and opened in 1914 though the first occupants were war casualties numbering at one time 550. The reason for the new hospital appears to have been an epidemic of ringworm of the scalp that had reached alarming proportions. This was treated by superficial X ray equipment, which was kept in the specialist's private rooms.

He like many others there will have joined the 3rd Northern General to do war work.

Hi Syrup,

There were two James Clarke's in the RAMC during WW1 and fun illy enough both of them were Scottish. Unfortunately the one you list above is the wrong one as our James never attained a higher rank than Capatin
