Mr Leonard Charles Moore

Leonard Charles Moore

Mr Leonard Charles Stanley Moore was born at 170 Acre Road in Kingston-Upon-Thames, Surrey, England on 25 February 1893.

He was the son of Edward Thomas Moore (b. 1850), a bricklayer, and Annie Jane Saunders Aspland (b. 1852). His father hailed from Kent whilst his mother was a native of Middlesex and they were married in Camberwell on 14 October 1871, producing a total of ten children, six of whom survived infancy.

Leonard's siblings were: Jessie Beatrice (b. 1873), Ada Florence Saunders (b. 1875), Eveline Edith (1878-1878), Maud Ethel (1881-1882), Clieve Alfred (b. 1883), Olive Maud Saunders (b. 1885), Maud Annie (b. 1887), Bertha Gertrude Aspland (b. 1890) and John(1).

He first appears on the 1901 census living with his family at 170 Acre Road. They later moved to 134 Acre Road and appeared there on the 1911 census, by that time Leonard being described as a bricklayer, like his father and brother.

In April 1911 Leonard had travelled to Hoboken, New Jersey with his "brother" John where they settled at 509 Willow Avenue and continued to work in the building trade. Leonard returned home to England in January 1912 to visit his family with the intention of returning to Hoboken in later months.
He boarded the Titanic at Southampton as a third class passenger (ticket number A4. 54510, which cost £8, 1s).

Leonard Moore died in the sinking and his body, if recovered, was never identified.
