A WW1 Family Medal Group named to the Tilbey family who originated from Colnbrook, Buckinghamshire where they worked in farming.

The medals belong to three brothers, Alfred (born 1893), Albert (born 1897) and Frederick (born 1899). Sadly, Alfred and Albert both died during the war, but Frederick survived and undertook war work in WW2. Their entry on the 1911 Census can be viewed by clicking on here, if you have access to Ancestry.

The details of their awards are as follows:-

I have been unable to locate any service records to this man. His Medal Index Card and medal roll details can be viewed by clicking on here and on here, (again if you have access to Ancestry, although a paper copy of the MIC will be provided with this listing).

Alfred died of wounds on the 7th June 1917, his Commonwealth War Graves Entry can be viewed by clicking on here. He is buried at Bailleul Communal Cemetery in France and on the war memorial at Langley Berkshire.

Albert Edward Tilbey, who served with 1st/22nd Battalion London Regiment:

Frederick survived the war and returned to Colnbrook. He features on the 1939 Register, details of which can be viewed by clicking on here, (again if you have access to Ancestry). It appears that he undertook some kind of war work during WW2, given his age it was likely to be Home Guard, as he was awarded a Defence Medal. The name and address on the box of issue matches the location on the register.

All of the medals to all three brothers come with original ribbons, and in regards to the plaques they also come with the original cardboard outers and their Buckingham Palace condolence slips.

I CANNOT SPLIT THIS FAMILIY GROUP.

FURTHER DETAILS:

In regards to Alfred:

Alfred served in the 2/1 Berkshire Yeomanry, this regiment was formed as a second-line regiment in September 1914 and remained at home throughout the war. This probably accounts for why he transferred to the Worcestershire Regiment. He served in the 3rd Battalion, which at the time of his death was a part of 74th Brigade in the 25th Division.

The date of Albert’s death coincides with the first day of the Battle of Messines, in which the Division took a part. Details of both can be viewed by clicking on here and on here.

In regards to Albert:

Albert served with the 22nd (County of London) Battalion (The Queen's), and arrived in France on the 1st September 1916, he died of wounds a month later. At the time of his death the Battalion was a part of the 142nd Brigade serving with the 47th (2nd London) Division.

The date of his death coincides with the last day of the Battle of Transloy Ridges, in which the Division took a part. Details of both can be viewed by clicking on here and on here.

Frederick served with the 7th Battalion Duke Of Cornwall’s Light Infantry which was a part of the 20th Light Infantry Division. The actions and activities of the Division can be viewed by clicking on here.
