    I have the medals and service record upto 1941

    He was born 1/3/1905 but cannot find death certificate as I want to get his records from 1941-46

    He was attached NZN 1935-38

    Can anyone help?

    Regards

    Thanks but that’s his record from 1927-41 which I already have

    His 1941-46 record is in the P&V records held by the mod and needs a death certificate to get released and £30 payable to the RN archivist

    Regards

    Sorry, can find his birth, baptism and census details but no death - could he have emigrated?

    That’s what I’m thinking, he was attached NZN and there was a Clive Taylor born 1905 died 1990 Australia

    Birth: 1905
    Death: 1990 - Bundaberg, Queensland, Australia
    Marriage: 1930 - Queensland, Australia
    Spouse: Eva Lillian Turner

    The detail shows:
    Birth - 1905 • Durham, England

    Your man was born in Redditch, Worcs

    I dont seem to be able to find a death for him either - he was in the RN and also it seems the NZN - so I assume there is a chance that if he emigrated to NZ then he may not have travelled throught the normal shipping routes and hence his 'trail' will be cold. Perhaps ask [not sure how you find out except look for NZ in their username] a member who is NZ based and has access to genealogical databases in NZ, mine doesnt quite stretch that far I'm afraid.

    Maybe edit the thread title to add possible NZ connection

    Found a Clive Taylor died New Zealand 1985 but cannot access the record via ancestry as I need worldwide
    This would tie in with his NZN service
    Can any member help

    We have Ancestry for NZ stuff so I will check out the name when I get a moment this weekend. Not sure if its relevant to CPO Taylor's service since he was attached from 1935 to 1938 but the New Zealand Division of the Royal Navy only became the Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) from 1 October 1941.

    I think he died in New Zealand so I need a death certificate to release his Royal Naval Record’s which may shed light also on his New Zealand division of the Royal Navy

    Thank you in advance of any help you can give

    Regards

    James
