    Notes 
    • 1911 census: the crew list for HMS Squirrel. at Millbray Dock, Plymouth, Devon includes Herbert Minter, 21, single, officer's steward, 2nd class, born Peasenhall, Suffolk.

      It's possible that one or both of the following record in the National Archives of Australia relates to this person:
      1. MINTER Herbert : Service Number - 60078 : Place of Birth - Suffolk England : Place of Enlistment - Sydney NSW : Next of Kin - (Mother) MINTER Ellen
      2. MINTER HERBERT : Service Number - N469911 : Date of birth - 29 Apr 1889 : Place of birth - SUFFOLK ENGLAND : Place of enlistment - RANDWICK NSW : Next of Kin - MINTER LEAH [WW2]. Confirmed at www.ww2roll.gov.org - Private in 28 ENG BN V D C P T D.

      The above seems very likely: a Herbert Minter aged 56 was cremated at the Eastern Suburbs Crematorium on 18 August 1945. His ashes were taken away.
      It's also evident, from the announcement of Herbert's death in August 1945 in the Sydney Morning Herald, that Herbert married and had a family. The announcement mentions his wife Leah, children Jessie (Mrs Patterson), Tressie, Marjorie (Mrs Francis) and Douglas, son-in-law Clyde and granddaughter Caroline. Of these I've found official records for Marjorie, whose marriage to Clyde Truitt Francis occured in 1944 and for Douglas.

      Electoral Rolls confirm Herbert's wife was Leah.
