Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb

I have just come across a document on FMP that shows my grandfather in
the Navy from 20 July 1917, serving in President II (Stratford) and
President V (Stratford) as AM11(CH) and then actAM1 then act M1 and
finally M1 and demobilised on 14 Jan 19.
Would this have been a full time occupation, or only a reservist
'evenings and weekends' service. He was born 11 April 1886 so presumably
would have been eligible to serve. His occupation is shown as Hotel
manager (in reality it was a large East End pub).
Any thoughts or help gratefully appreciated.

Although Stone crosses were commonly used as boundary markers he dose not link this practice to your examples. Three Crosses is listed as being named so because it was at a junction of 3 roads and Four Crosses being at the intersection of two roads (hence 4 places to cross).
No clear references to Foxes.
