I have since found Ernest and family Lived at Tamnavelton Laurevale Co Armagh which is where Ernest died, I suspect he is buried in family grave but no marker will try to find out if he is in church records.

Joe,

There is a Militia Service Record on Findmypast for him- definitely him because his trf to Regular Army 9/8/07 matches the enlistment date on his Silver War Badge record.

It shows him aged 17 yrs 6 months in May 1907, born Shankhill, Lurgan, Armagh and gives NoK as

        Father Robert, Mother Mary, Bros Thomas and William

         Address 46 Charles St, Lurgan.

 

May help find a grave?

 Charlie
