Robert Thomas DAVIDSON
Rank: Air Mechanic, Third Class
Number: 124026
Unit: Reserve Depot ROYAL AIR FORCE
Date of Death: 27 April 1918
Age: 38
Cemetery: Philips Park Cemetery, Manchester

Robert was born in Manchester and spent most of his life there, possibly until he married Janet Forsyth at St Phillip’s Church. Certainly, shortly after that, the couple are thought to have moved to live at 38 Lyme Grove, Romiley, where they would have two children together.

The 1901 Census records Robert, living at home at 42 Gleden Street, Ancoats , as working as a salesman selling tailors’ trimmings and it is thought he continued in this linen of work until he joined the Air Force, almost certainly as a conscript.

He is reported to have died of natural causes whilst at a camp in Dorset.
