Request for additional details on a WW2 Merchant Seaman Is there a forum user possibly specialising in WW2 Merchant Seaman casualties who could assist with a research query please? Able Seaman Ronald (Ronnie) Cradduck died of illness in India in November 1942. Details of his death and burial are not recorded by the CWGC (presumably this was because his death was not as the result of enemy action?). To keep supplementary questions to a minimum, I do not know which vessel Ronnie Cadduck had sailed to India. If Ronnie Cradduck had been serving in the Royal Navy rather than Merchant Navy and died of illness in a shore-based hospital he would most likely have been commemorated by the CWGC. Does anyone happen to know where Ronnie Cradduck died and where he is buried please? Is there a Merchant Seaman's memorial anywhere that commemorates Ronnie Cradduck's death? Around the same time as Ronnie died in India his father Thomas (Tom) Cradduck died as the result of his vessel being torpedoed by German U-Boat. The date was 2 November 1942 and the vessel was the 'SS Empire Leopard'. Tom Cradduck's death is listed by the CWGC. Tom Cradduck is also commemorated on the Tower Hill Memorial, London. Thanks in advance to anyone who can assist.
