Hi Andy two soldiers I am intrested in onre my grandfather :

Private W.A. McGuigan 41672, 8th Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and L/Cpl X206 D.J.B.Byrne 2nd South African Infantry. Any information would be gratefully received.

Do you know if a death certificate was issued for solders killed in action or never found during the 1st W.W. and if so where can they be obtained?

Best wishes Ian.

Ian

Death certificates were issued for all soldiers who died in the war. Those dying overseas can be found in the Overseas Army Registers whilst those who died in the UK are in the domestic registers. Both sets of registers are available on FindmyPast. The actual certificates can then be ordered in the usual way from the GRO.

However...

Army death certificates do not usually contain the same level of detail as their domestic counterparts. Cause of death is usually limited to "Killed in Action", "Died of Wounds" etc and place of death is normally no more specific than the theatre of war.

I can show you an example if it helps.

Regards

Mike Shingleton

Hello everyone,

Just to let you all know that Diane has sent me the updated spreadsheet which can be downloaded from my Sons of Galloway site.

A very big well done to you Diane! Give your fingers and keyboard a well-earned rest.

All the best,
