    Notes 
    • living with sister Edith in 1911
      At some point, probably before 1905, he worked for his father's firm (the builders Collier & Catley). His father supposedly threatened him with the sack for some transgression! In later life, he was a carpenter and worked (part time at least), well past retirement age.

      He is buried with his wife. The inscription reads: In loving memory of a dear husband and father Frederick Ernest Howes who died 7th February 1966 aged 81 years. Until the day breaks and the shadows flee away. Also his wife Hilda Florence Howes who died 26th March 1969 aged 75 years.

      Memory of R A Howes: We visited them every third Sunday, cycling (or travelling by bus) from Earley. One such visit was 6th February 1966 when Frederick was unwell. The cause of his illness was unclear - the doctor had suggested stomach problems. He died the following day.
