Harold LOWEY [Parents] was born on 19 Sep 1897 in Birkenhead, Cheshire. He died on 24 Nov 1941 in South Atlantic. Harold married Maude Ada Angela GORDON on 9 Jan 1935 in Holyhead, Anglesey, Wales.

According to one family source, Harold was of Manx origin, but another member of the family has told me that, while the Lowey name is common in the Isle of Man, it appears that Harold's great-grandfather Richard Lowey came from Kilcoo in Co. Down. Richard settled in Merseyside and married in Liverpool in 1820.

Harold was a naval officer. After his marriage he and his wife, Maude, lived for a time in Malta, where he was stationed, before returning to England where he and Maude lived at 255 Chatsworth Avenue, Cosham, Portsmouth.

Harold was killed when his ship, HMS Dunedin, was torpedoed by a German U-boat in the South Atlantic during World War II. He is remembered on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial (panel 45, column 3).

Maude Ada Angela GORDON [Parents] was born on 23 Aug 1894 in Fairymount, Co. Roscommon. She died on 11 Aug 1987. She was buried in Shanganagh Cemetery, Dublin. Maude married Harold LOWEY on 9 Jan 1935 in Holyhead, Anglesey, Wales.

There is a Maude Gordon listed along with a Gertrude Gordon in the 1911 census of Ireland as a 15-year-old student at Loreto Convent boarding school in Dalkey, Co. Dublin. Athough the county of birth of Maude is given as Co. Galway (possibly because the family had moved to Co. Galway from Co. Roscommon where Maude was born), it is probable that the Maude at Loreto is our Maude above.

Maude is listed with the family of her sister Ivy Hosty in Bootle, Lancashire in the 1939 Register. Presumably she had moved in with them as her husband, Harold, was away serving wih the Royal Navy at the time.

They had the following children.

There is a Gertrude Gordon listed (along with a Maude Gordon) in the 1911 census of Ireland as a 13-year-old student at Loreto Convent boarding school in Dalkey, Co. Dublin. I believe it is likely that the Gertrude at Loreto is our Gertie above.

The grave of Gertie and her husband, Dan, in Deansgrange Cemetery is quite close to that of Gertie's sisters Ethel, Laura, Freda and Ivy who are all buried together.
