Thanks Syrup for that, so it looks like it would be Henry Bamforth who would have been old enough to have served in the first world war at some point.

There's a George Henry Bamforth born

Q1 1896 Sheffield George Henry Bamforth 9c 589

He Served as Pte 10540 Y&L, some papers on Ancestry, looks like he was a bad lad and struck a superior officer whilst drunk

Yes I saw that, but I think it says his father was Henry and he lived in Brightside.

These are the burnt records, so though Henry might have been in WW1 his records might be one that was destroyed.

I'm a bit confused because there is no Henry in that 1911 household - the eldest son is called Percy.
