  3. Question Missing GRO Death Certificates - WW2 RAF

    Two of my husband's uncles were Flight Engineers in the RAF and both were shot down and killed. I have looked for them on the GRO Index and cannot find either of them. Does anyone have any ideas why their deaths would not have been registered?
