25th County of London Cyclist Battalion
The London Regiment


Frederick "Sailor" William HAGEMAN

Frederick was born in 1877 in Chelsea, the son of George Hageman (born in Germany), a carpenter, and Eliza. In the 1891 census Frederick is a sailor in training on the vessel 'Eamouth' in the Thames Estuary off Grays Thurrock, Essex. (Hence his nickname at a guess). I cannot find him or his parents in the censuses from 1891-1911. He married Rose Barber in 1915 and died in 1960.
