Robert was born in 1889 at Glenart Road, Blackrock, Dublin (The family home) . I have confirmed his birth record on his family tree I maintain in He was KIA at Neuve-Église, Belgium on 2 Sep 1918 (not 2 Aug 18)

Parents Names: Son of Sarah Margretta Atwell, of 10 Braid Hills Rd. Edinburgh, and Richard Atwell, late of Blackrock, Co. Dublin.
Notes: His father, Richard Atwell was born c.1852 in Carrickclasy (Carrigglass?), Longford.  It is not certain if Robert ever spent any appreciable time in Longford. Many thanks to Peter Power-Hayes for the information on Robert.
