Bombardier Samuel F. Greenfield - 83656

According to his attestation papers dated November 30, 1914 at Toronto, Samuel Greenfield was born on April 13, 1887 in Toronto.  He listed his father Mr. T. Greenfield, Humber Bay as his next of kin.  He was a teamster and a member of the Queens Own, Toronto for 3 years.  He was 27 years old and stood 5 feet 8 inches high.  He had brown eyes, dark brown hair and a good complexion.  He had a tattoo on his right forearm and an appendix scar.  He was a member of the Church of England.

His brother Thomas also enlisted but did not survive the war.  There is also an Albert Greenfield on the Honour Roll but I am not sure of the relationship between him and Thomas and Samuel.

In the 1911 census he listed his birth year as 1888 but he was actually born in 1887 as listed.  This is confirmed by his birth registration. 

In the 1921 Toronto city directory he is listed as living on the east side of Oliver Street, Humber Bay.
