The war did not end in 1918. That was only an armistice - a cease fire.

Technically the war did not end until the several peace treaties were signed. The UK government declared the war over on 31.08.21.

For some Brits the fighting did not even end in 1918 - Russia, India, Ireland, Iraq etc.

Sorry to go off topic but how do i obtain a death certificate of a man i am researching?

He wasn't killed in the war and i'm pretty sure he died as a civilian (although he had the honourary rank of 2nd Lieutenant)

Any help would be gratefully received.

Thanks
