Orlando Meaking Underwood was born at Derby, Derbyshire in 1884. His parents were Octavious Underwood, born at Dursley, Gloucestershire, in 1857, and Agnes Underwood (nee Meakin) born at Chellaston, Derbyshire, in 1885 who married in 1895.
Orlando Meaking Underwood appears to have been given a middle name based upon his mother’s maiden name of ‘Meakin‘. In the birth register his middle name is listed as ‘Meaking‘, but the extra ‘g’ is probably a mistake and in the death register it is listed as ‘Meakin‘. He died in Shardlow, Derbyshire, aged 10 in 1894.
