Individual Note

Hubert John PERRY was always known as Bert. He was the only son of John PERRY, a File Cutter and his second wife Elizabeth PERRY nee MERCER. Bert first worked as a Sheet Metal Worker, but then became a Tram Driver about 1912. He married local girl Nellie Hilda WHITTINGHAM in 1915. Bert PERRY enlisted in the British Army on 28 Sep 1916 serving in the MT Section of the Army Service Corps (MT) in France. His army number was 230330. He survived the war and served in the Occupation forces in Germany in 1919; then returning to the Trams in Birmingham. Bert & Hilda only had one child, Bert later retired early aged 54 on ill-health (eyesight) grounds, and moved to Wembury, in Devon. Circa 1961, Bert & Hilda moved back to Solihull to live in a Granny flat extension to his adult child's house. The whole family unit then moved to Portland in 1969, where Bert & Hilda later moved into Ladymead Hall sheltered accomodation circa 1975. Bert PERRY finally moved to Herrison Hospital, Charminster, suffering from dementia, where he died in 1983.
