The wife's name was Louise Josephine Chiswell. The parents are William Edward Holman and Priscilla Mary Unwin. The siblings were (after Harry) Joseph Edward, Alice Emma, Nellie Louisa, possibly John,(I am not sure if this is the same as the next one) Alfred John and Frederick James. They were all born in Portsmouth.

They were all born in Southampton. The younger two boys died in WWI. Alice died at the age of 4. William James' parents were James Ashe Gabb Chriswell and Matilda Bond.

I am interested in Harry Holman because we share the same surname, I doubt that there is any direct relation but would be interested to find out.

Dee, in cases like yours the thing is to work backwards from yourself. You will get two or three generations easily and you can look at the various branches of your family tree. Harry Holman lived not all that long ago and records should be there. The cost of searching varies a lot and in some places it's decidedly expensive. There are limits to what can be done online, so be prepared to dig into old files in all formats. Good hunting!

Thanks Dave, I have an extensive tree on Ancestry dating back to 1500's! I pay a monthly fee due to being so addicted to it! I have not followed all paths completely but it looks unlikely that I am related. Most of my Holman ancestors were from Cornwall.

Bit of an old thread but Harry was my dads brother. Is confirmed in the family tree and quite interesting. My understanding is we have very few relatives. But anyway Hi if any are out there.
