My Great Grandfather, Master Mariner John Pool appears in the mariners register as being presumed drowned in July 1897 - further research reveals this took place at Bridport on March 21st when "he was transacting the usual business of the ship, has never been seen since, supposed to be drowned'. He was working on The Flown a Sunderland ship. I can find no death certificate or anything else - he vanished! Any ideas any one - indeed were there occasion when a certificate was never issued?.
