The important thing about one Regan fold3 record

https://www.fold3.com/image/643058658?xid=1022

is it has as a header "Naval Pensions to Widows of Men whose death is attributable to warlike operations"

The other card is

https://www.fold3.com/image/669476358?xid=1022 - widow and children's details

Can find his naval record on ancestry but not on FMP

Find my Past records for Royal Naval Seaman only starts  in 1899. So any seaman who enlisted before 1899 will not show up.

I haven't seen the record, but it should be "Interstitial" not "Intestinal".

It's a kidney disease, not a bowel disease.

Would that be Brights Disease ?

That helps a great deal, yes indeed Brights Disease is a kidney problem, thank you Dai and Bob!.

Not exactly synonymous, but both are kidney diseases.

Bright's disease was described in the days before fancy renal function tests, but described signs like protein or blood in the urine with peripheral fluid retention.

Specific inflammation of different parts of the kidney, like the glomerular apparatus, or the interstitial tissue surrounding it, has a specific appearance on microscopy, so they get labelled as glomerulonephritis or interstitial nephritis.

The end result will be similar, a degree of renal failure.

Fold 3 has a pension record for 1648 Royal Munster Fusiliers John Crean  died 5/9/1915.  Find my Past has a service record for 1648 John Crean, attested 4 August 1885 discharged 23 November 1906  a service of 21 years and.112 days. Served in Burma and South Africa. Ended his service as Colour Sergeant. Wonder if he was related to Tom Crean?

Unable to help, unwilling to pay the extra for Fold3. I'm sure someone will be along soon. Can't find anything relating to service during the war.

Terry says.

No evidence. Nothing on pension card (and the pension was refused)

Yes indeed, he was a War Clerk, that's good enough for me. I will save him with the others anyway.
