Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Sean.
About 2/3 of WW1 service records burned during WW2, so you have to be lucky. Possibly, the most complete records for those who survived are the medal...

Yesterday, I looked him up on CWGC to get his service number, and noticed on the burial information card that the family had taken responsibility for the care of the grave. It is the only CWGC grave...

If you know any of his family, you could get them to apply for a copy of his service record.
It's much easier to help if a name is provided!

According to the HE site, the building was still standing in 2005.
My fingers are crossed.. Thanks for the update.

Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum!
There's a decent web page about the Society HERE. While you wait for specific help, it'll give you a bit of background and leads to a couple of books and a...

Have you tried advertisements in the papers of the time?
Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Chloe.
Since you are a new member, you may not be aware that, according to our T&C, we do not allow details about (potentially) living people on the public...
I’d also take a look at Frank Cordell’s family connections.
Why do you assume his family didn’t claim him?
Who was probate granted to?
Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum!
It sounds as though you have an idea of how things work, so pick a suitable forum and tell us about a bit of your research?
Above all, enjoy!

No apologies necessary, Kathy.
I haven't done a multi-post merge in a couple of years, so I'm feeling quite pleased with myself!
Because two threads on the same theme were both accumulating research help (thank you all), a situation we cannot allow as it causes confusion, I have merged the research help here with the other...

Two threads were both developing into research threads on the same theme, something we do not allow as it gets frustrat8ing when someone spends time working on one thread and then finds that someone...
I can’t see why your messages vanished - had it been by the deliberate action of Mods or Admin, it takes several steps to delete messages, and we usually discuss what and why in the Mod’s...
Try the 1911 census. That should give some of them. The older generation is more likely to provide helpful information. Grandmother's surnames, for a start.
I would go back a generation, or maybe even 2. The name could come from the uncles/aunts or grandparent level. Possibiities could include the married-in side of each couple. Cynically put, children...

That could mean that both parents are dead - if they had no relatives, the parish often found them a place.
Of course, it wasn't unknown for fathers to find everything too much and move away,...

I was in too much of a hurry to search back up the thread to remind myself when the famous English trip happened….. it seemed possible that he could have gone over to sort out family business.. the...

The Hoek van Holland ferry (not sure if it was then going to Dover or Harwich then) was running then, he could have easily crossed on it without much notice.
Is the Andrew Kopp in #65 the one...

You could look at Sarah’s death certificate. It should say whether she was a wife or widow. If Daniel died after her, there should be a death registration for him somewhere. If he died before 1837,...

Welcome to the British Genealogy Forum, Sandra.
Since I was using Scotlands People, and Brett says that he didn't know which country Robert had died in, I had a quick look at their index. There is a...

Murphy's Law of genealogy said that as soon as you start relying on one of the "rules", there will come a ghostly snigger as the researcher discovers that the couple being sought ignored such things....
