By 1911, he has moved to Dromore and is boarding in house 3, Mount Street, Dromore.  This year, he describes his occupation as a Bank Cashier. 
Agnew served with the Royal Navy and attained the rank of Seaman.

  1. This information is correct. The obituary for Capt. Andy Agnew, MBE notes the elder of his two sons was employed by the Belfast Bank at Coleraine and the addresses are consistent with census records and known addresses for the family.


Please add any verifiable information to assist me in building on the biographical information already detailed. Thank you.
