Commonwealth War Graves

Hi all. Not asking for anything but offering. I live north of Inverness and whilst out and about I often see little old graveyards, some with a Commonwealth War Grave sign on the gate. If I spot that, I stop and go to find the grave and take photos of the graves. Many of the graveyards are in fairly...

Re: Death certificate

Thank you. That has cleared a couple of things up for me. FMP has also offered a few more clues into the bigger picture I’m trying to piece together.

Re: Death certificate

Yes, that is a possibility I hadn’t thought of, thank you. Looking at it, entirely possible. What confused me is that in Scottish records, under the informant details it normally says “present”. I had thought that meant that the informant had come into the registry office in person to register the d...

Re: Death certificate

Thanks Andrew. I’m pretty sure it was some sort of institution Cecilia was in as she was also listed as “feeble minded”. It wasn’t the usual list of “head” and various other titles “son” , lodger” etc. Just a list of names. Here is the document section showing informants details. A66F52B0-E6F9-4771-...

Death certificate

Hoping someone here might be able to help me untangle something. I have found a relative’s death certificate from 1945. She was a widow, and the informant was her sister. This sister had been listed on 1911 census as an “inmate” in Kilmalcom Dustrict (no institution name)and was described as being “...

Re: WW2 naval records

Thank you, Meg. I have used that before to get my father’s records but wasnt sure if I could get uncle’s as I’m not his next of kin. I know one of his daughters is dead, but no idea about my other cousins as we aren’t in touch. I will contact them though to find out.

WW2 naval records

Hope someone can help. I know one of my uncles, born 1917, served in the navy during WW2. He survived the war, passing away in 1993. I have searched but can’t find any naval records for him. Only uncles who served in WW2 I can get any military info about is one who died at Dunkirk, and one who was a...

Re: Accuracy of certificates

Interesting. My late grandad’s sister died in Dundee East Poorhouse in December 1918. Her widower was listed as a jute mill worker and also as 2/4 City of Dundee Battalion Royal Highlanders. She had six children who all died in infancy or early childhood. I have contacted Dundee archives to try to e...
