Thank you again, so much for your help and advice on this infosending1.
I do have the box ticked to send me an alert if I get a reply, but it isn't working so I'll check that out.
I think I've got all the info on Walter now that you kindly helped me out with the death details, and I'm slowly getting there working on his ancestors now. I was confused as I couldn't find a death cert on ancestry for him. I only knew he was "at sea" as his wife stated it on the 1911 census. I had no idea where to start looking for info on his death.
I really dont want to be a pain in the bum as you have been very kind and more than helpfull already, but could you maybe point me in the right direction with looking for peoples military service/records. My Dad keeps on to me to trace his Grandfathers records but I dont have a clue where to start. I have photos on ancestry of him and his regiment, and my Dad remembers that he had several medals, but we have no idea what for etc. I know this is all really vague, but it's all we have to go on.
I'm sorry if I'm being a pain (I'm honestly not as thick as I must sound), and thank you once again for the help you have already given me, it is much appreciated :-)
