Through Ancestry.com,  I found a Family Tree that linked into a portion of my ancestors.  There was this wonderful photo of 14 men who were part of the crew for HMS Black Prince with this Tree.

The photo has a small "blue pen X" above one of the men - (3rd from the right in the back row). He was, Armourer, Arthur William Ambler RN#350887 born June 16, 1879 at Birmingham, England. He was killed on board HMS Black Prince during the Battle of Jutland (evening of May 31/June 1, 1916).

His daughter, Madeline Cissie Ambler (born Mar. 8, 1906) married a brother of my Grandfather in 1930.

So I am not directly related to him but I am someone who believes strongly in remembering the sacrifice made by Canadian and British men and women in the 1st and 2nd World Wars.

I spoke with the gentleman who has this Ancestry Tree and he indicates there is no identification of the other 13 in the photo. Perhaps someone will recognize their ancestor in this photo.
