    Hi all - I would be very grateful if any sleuthing experts out there could assist in trying to find wartime details of the above.

    He is listed on my Church War Memorial in Royton and is also listed on the Royton Town Memorial, however he died from TB in July 1948 I believe and is buried in Hollinwood Cemetery on the other side of Oldham. Despite war service he was just outside the time for allocation of a War Grave and the civil headstone states he did war service. We do not know what branch of the Services he served with so would appreciate any assistance.

    Many thanks
