War13Memorial Posted 10 November , 2013 Share Posted 10 November , 2013 Officer's Steward Second Class L/3813 Died 6th October 1918. He was a Sunderland man. Died of Spanish Flu on Hospital Ship Soudan at Scapa Flow Buried Sunderland Bishopwearmouth Cemetery. Grave Ref. 20 CC 2537 (CWGC) [not my research done by a friend] The question is why was his body taken from Orkney to be buried in Sunderland, is this not unusual ? I would have thought that when someone died of the flu the body would be buried asap as flu very contagious. thanks Billy Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
