        Notice that he was living in Haswell Moor and not with his parents in Hartlepool. Perhaps he had gone to work in the coalfield for a while and met Dorothy in Haswell. [2, 4]

      • Funeral service held in Salvation Army Citadel, Durham St. Hartlepool.
      • John Thomas Broom, stoker, RNVR, aged 19, of 7 Alfred Street, Hartlepool. lost on Queen Mary at Jutland (from a WW1 web site).
        I'm confident that this is Dorothy's boy friend and 'intended'. His brother was Joe Broom, older than John.
