    Hi I was pointed in the direction of your post by my uncles wife who happened to see it when she did a search on Alfred Solly.

    The Alfred Solly that you mention as being your grandfather appears to be my great grandfather.

    Born 10/02/1864 Whitehaven Cumberland. Father Alfred Solly rank/profession Railway engine stoker. Mother Isabella Solly late Swainson formerly Foster.

    Married 13/01/1896 age 31 to Matilda Jane Phillips Head. in the parish of Charles. Plymouth.

    Died 20th July 1917 when the boat he was serving on as an engineer (sub-lieutenant) RNR was sunk by an enemy mine in the north sea 12 miles off Orford Suffolk.

    If this is indeed your Grandfather that must make you my mothers cousin?
