    Cecil was born 2Q1895, eldest son of Alfred George (1870-1944) and Isabella (nee Hudson, 1869-1903), who were married 1Q1893 at the Osmaston Road General Baptist Chapel, Derby in 1Q1893. He had a younger brother Alfred Douglas (1896-1975) before his mother died. Alfred remarried to Ellen Hawksworth (1873-1925) at St Luke's Derby in 2Q1904. They then had 3 further children: Eric (b. 1906), Winifred (b. 1907) and Phylllis Marie (b. 1911).
    His brother, Alfred, also served as a Lieutenant in the 3rd Battalion of the Sherwood Foresters.
    During July 1915, after being assistant to Harry Fowler, Mr. Cecil Robinson became scoutmaster. He was comparatively small in height and therefore not allowed to join the army until the formation of the Bantam Regiment early 1917." (Extract from "60 years of Scouting in Spondon 1910-1970" by Jim Moore.)
