WW I military death records identify a Joseph Henry Prentice, Driver, Royal Field Artillery, "B" Bty. 116th Bde., who d. at the age of 25 on 29 Oct 1917, son of Elizabeth Emily Hunt (formerly Prentice) of 95 Mitcham Rd., Tooting, London, and the late Richard Prentice. Born at Chelsea, London. His memorial is 1255, Salonika (Lembet Road) Military Cemetery. A Google search discloses the following information:

      Location: Thessalonika (Salonika) is the town in Greece at the head of the Gulf of Thessalonika. The cemetery is on the northern outskirts of Thessalonika, adjoining the Roman Catholic French and Italian War Cemeteries. It lies on the west side of the road to Seres.

      Historical Information: At the invitation of the Greek Prime Minister, M. Venizelos, Salonika (now Thessalonika) was occupied by three French Divisions and the 10th (Irish) Division from Gallipoli, in October 1915. Other French and Commonwealth forces landed during the year and in the Summer of 1916, they were joined by Russian and Italian troops. In August 1916, a Greek revolution broke out in Salonika, with the result that the Greek national army came into the War on the Allied side.

      The town was the base of the British Salonika Force and it contained, from time to time, eighteen general and stationary hospitals. Three of these hospitals were Canadian, although there were no other Canadian units in the force. The earliest Commonwealth burials took place in the local Protestant and Catholic cemeteries.

      Salonika (Lembet Road) Military Cemetery (formerly known as the Anglo-French Military Cemetery) was begun in November 1915, and Commonwealth, French, Serbian, Italian and Russian sections, were formed. The Commonwealth section remained in use until October 1918, although from the beginning of 1917, burials were also made in Mikra British Cemetery. After the Armistice, some graves were brought in from other cemeteries in Macedonia and from Scala Cemetery, near Cassivita on the island of Thasos. There are now 1,648 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery. The Commonwealth Plot also contains 45 Bulgarian and one Serbian

Robert Prentice no.3 buried 16 Aug 1837 & Mary his wife 10 Sep 1832, both in Chelsea, Midsex, England. I might have found Charles Prentice (Chr. 6 Jan 1799), no 4 above 2nd marriage. Charles Prentice (Wid) & Frances Jones (Wid), 21 Oct 1833, St Mary's Lambeth, Surrey, England. There's a marriage for Frances Ames & John Jones, 19 Jul 1829, St Mary's Lambeth & a burial for John Jones 13 Jan 1833 (age 33) St Mary's Lambeth. Children from Charles Prentice's first marriage were William Daniel Prentice, b 1821 Chelsea - Born 10 Mar 1821, chr 9 Sep 1821, Chelsea Sarah Prentice, b. ??, Queenhithe. She m Benjamin Harrison - Chr 11 Jun 1824, buried 22 Dec 1824 both in Chelsea. So can't have marriage Benjamin. George Charles Prentice born 1 Aug 1828 & Mary Ann Prentice born 7 Apr 1832 both in Chelsea. Hannah Prentice, b 1813 and d early - Can't find any records, would have been born 7yrs before they married. Eliza Prentice, m. John Harrison. - Can't find any records for her.
