Hi All

Is there anyway i can find out any more details about this soldier ?

http://www.cwgc.org/search/casualty_detail...casualty=573506

My great grandfather Hugh Robert Hughes is deceased by 1937 on my grandma's wedding certificate.

i have checked deaths for him but have found nothing, the family was from Liverpool.

so just in case he is killed during ww1 i checked the CWGC site. only one H R Hughes comes up, but with no details. so im hoping i can find something out on this man just in case it is my great grandfather.

there is no service record on Ancestry for him.

Any ideas please.

Many thanks

Tony

Tony - according to Soldiers Died in the Great War, the soldier you mention was Hugh Riddihough Hughes, and he came from Stockwell, SE London.
