    Hi there

    How can I find out how Sister Frances Alexander Millar Queen Alexandra's Imperial Military Nursing Service (QAIMNS) died? Illness, enemy action?

    There's no way to identify whether she died from illness, injury or enemy action[​IMG]? Her probate just says 'died 24 may 1943 on war service'

    Army Roll of Honour 1939-1945 adds that she was born and lived in Eire, which fits with this newspaper article.

    Her entry on the casualty list simply states 'died'.

    Entries normally come under the following headings:
    Killed in action
    Died of wounds
    Died as a result of accident
    Missing presumed dead
    Dangerously ill

    For what it's worth the term 'Died' would lead me to believe that she either died of natural causes or an illness.
