About Isidor Eduard Funk, (Israel Edward)

Name amended to Isidor Eduard Funk as this appears to be the name he commonly used/was born with, although abbreviated to Edward Funk when he came to the UK. The name Israel Edward Funk previously shown may be because his Hebrew name was Israel. His son Walter stated on his naturalisation application that his father was Israel Edward Funk (Neil Stone 21/4/2017)

Buried Ravensworth Cemetery, Newcastle 29 April 1934; Plot D/16 (No stone or records found)


BMD: Franks, Edward 79 Newcastle T. 10b 63 (note age discrepancy vs 1911 census)

Note: The Israel Funk listed in the Hamburg Passenger lists as leaving Hamburg in July 1888 on the "Coblenz" bound for New York via Leith is probably not this Israel Funk. He is listed as born in 1861 age 27 from Ritewen (?), but in the Castle Garden immigration records for New York is shown as 17 years old, and arrived in NY on 16th August 1888. See document in Media tab.

Both Isidor FUNK and Adolph FUNK are listed as residents of Koenigsberg in 1878 and 1885. See:
