It just has Maurice, sorry.

Regards.

Tom

Thanks so much for the lookups as they are appreciated!

As Maurice was KIA in 1917, is that why his will was listed?

Does the book mainly focus on the soldiers who died in WW1?

Thanks again for your kind help!

Its a CD rom and as far as I know it lists wills that survived in the Irish National Archives in Dublin. They are not necessarily men who died, there are survivors in there also.

Regards.

Thanks for the information, Tom!

So Maurice's will would be in the National Archives?

Also, I was wondering if you would kindly do a lookup of

your resources for Pte. Hugh HIGNEY please?

He served in the Royal Irish Fusiliers and the Liverpool Regiment.

He survived WW1.

Thanks for any help and assistance!

Hi there, just noticed this thread. A bit late in the day but if you pick this up, do you have anything on Sergeant 3046 Andrew Joseph Russell, 4th Battalion (City of London) Regiment (Royal Fusiliers) Dow 14/09/16.

Many thanks.

Tom

I am sure you already have this, it would help if you say what you have;

RUSSELL, ANDREW JOSEPH

Initials: A J

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Serjeant

Regiment/Service: London Regiment (Royal Fusiliers)

Unit Text: 4th Bn.

Age: 29

Date of Death: 14/09/1916

Service No: 3046

Additional information: Son of the late Patrick Russell, of Kells, Co. Meath, and Mary Doyle, his wife. Born at Kells. B.A.

Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead

Grave/Memorial Reference: X. D. 9A.

Cemetery: ETAPLES MILITARY CEMETERY

Died of wounds, enlisted in Shaftsbury Street, N, while living in Highgate. He is not in Irekands memorial records. He should be in 'The Meath War Dead' which is due to be published shortly. I cannot find him in the census. Since the first posting of this topic access to ancestry has been made available but I dont have access to it.

Cheers.

Tom.

Thanks Tom, apologies for the lack of info, but that's all I have and what's on the CWGC. I really would like to trace more background on this man, he is buried next to my great grandfather, from the same Bn. and died on the same day. I have access to ancestry but there is very little showing up there other than the obvious.

I'm no geneaolgy or ww1 expert by any means so would welcome any tips.

Do you know when the Meath War Dead is published and how to access it?

Thanks for your interest.

Tom

I am sure you have SDGW and CWGC for him, I did have a look in the Roll of Honour for London and he is not listed there.

Cheers.

Tom.

Ok, thanks for your help Tom. By the way I just noticed that the 'Meath War Dead' book was published in June, it's listed on Amazon but currently unavailable.
