  • Notes 


    • There is an entry in the New Zealand birth index for Gregory Page Hanify, born 23 Nov 1894, but none for Godfrey. It seems that they are the same person, as there are no details known for Gregory apart from his birth, and Godfrey is known to have been born about 1895. Family tree charts by Greg Aldridge show only Godfrey.

      Godfrey was killed in action on 16 Sep 1916 in France in the Battle of the Somme in World War 1. He was noted in NZEF records as 10/3580 Hanify, Godfrey Page, Surveyor. Wellington Infantry Battalion, B Company. His next-of-kin was H.P. Hanify (father), 7 Raroa Rd, Wellington.

      He was buried in Plot 2, Row F, Grave 3 at the Caterpillar Valley Cemetery. His headstone reads "10/3580 Private G.P. Hanify, NZ Wellington Regt., 16th September 1916 Age 21".
      The NZEF Roll of Honour lists him as: Pte Hanify, Godfrey Page W.I.R. Killed in action France 16/9/16.
