    Update from CWGC

    Thank you for your email of 22 January 2012 and attached photographs which have been forwarded by our area office for a reply.

    I have examined our Second World War records and can find no mention of Alastair Douglas Anderson, George Reeves and John Wells.

    Our records are based on information given to the Commission by the Service Authorities after both world wars, and it may be possible that their details were never given to us. As this may be the case, you would need to provide documentary evidence, to support their deaths in the Second World War.

    Such documentary evidence could include the following:

    1)The casualty’s birth and death certificates. Copies can be obtained from the following address:

    Certificate Services Section
    General Registrar Office
    PO Box
    2 SOUTHPORT
    PR8 2JD
    Dedicated Telephone Number for Certificate Enquiries and Applications: Tel: 0845 603 7788
    E-Mail: certificate.services@ips.gsi.gov.uk
    Website: General Register Office (GRO) - Official information on births, marriages and deaths
    2) Memorial card

    3)Newspaper obituary

    4)Letter from the Commanding Officer

    5)Service record information from the following address:

    Army Personnel Centre
    Historical Disclosures, Mailpoint 555
    Kentigern House
    65 Brown Street
    Glasgow G2 8EX

    The photo of the headstone attached show Godwin-Monk (Father) Godwin- Monck (Son)

    States Son died 6/12/40 Enemy action and also states he was in the RAF.

    CWGC states died outside of service
    DC states died due to war service possible a civilian casualty after he left the RAF


    Point of note.
    Islington Cemetery:A large 250 plus acres,you can see from one of the photos it has been rather overgrown.Since my last visit another 4 to 5 rows of graves have been uncovered which included a number of WW2 CWGC headstones plus near by 2 headstones replaced that I reported last year.

    For Sergeant Pilot Collier – I checked the Flight Global archive and the only hits for that surname in 1947 were for an AVM. No hits on a casualty list or linked to an aircraft crash.

    I would presume that indicates that he died following his discharge from the service.

    As he is not officially commemorated, even though his death occurred during the period of eligibility, then the cause must not have been attributable to his service.

    There are plenty of personnel that are officially commemorated who died 2 or 3 years after they were discharged from service – for those personnel there must be a direct link between their service and their cause of death.

    On a couple of other threads I have examples of RAAF personnel who discharged and then passed away shortly afterwards. One of them is commemorated by the CWGC and the AWM ROH, but the other one isn’t.

    *******************************************************************************

    Corporal TIVER, Basley Clyde 48144 RAAF - not commemorated by the CWGC and the AWM ROH – he was discharged in January 1946 and died in September 1946
