    Hi, I don't know if you will notice my posting, as the others are 8 years old, but it is worth a try. I am researching a serviceman on our local WW2 War Memorial at Hawarden, Flintshire and he "Died" on the 19th February 1945:-
    Commonwealth War Graves Commission
    Service Number 14890761
    Died 19/02/1945
    General Service Corps

    Son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Wyatt, of Hawarden.


    Location: Flintshire, United Kingdom
    Number of casualties: 57
    Cemetery/memorial reference: West part.
    I am presuming that he hadn't been in the army long as it seems they were only there 6 weeks, but I know nothing about his army career, except that his casualty List stated that he "Died." I know his body was brought home as he is buried in Hawarden, and all I know is that he was in Bangor County Down, and his Probate is also below:-
    Hugh Trevor Wyatt in the England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1995
    Name: Hugh Trevor Wyatt
    Death Date: 19 Feb 1945
    Death Place: Chester, England
    Probate Date: 31 Aug 1945
    Probate Registry: Chester, England
    WYATT, Hugh Trevor of Station House, Hawarden, near Chester died 19th February 1945 at Military Hospital, Bangor, County Down. Administration, Chester 31st August to George WYATT Railway Yard Foreman. Effects £107 3s 4d.

    He was only 19 years old bless him, so can anyone shed any light onto this tragic boy please.
    Any help would be appreciated,
    Kindest regards,
    Mavis Williams

    You may need to contact them and ask the question as to how you obtain a copy death certificate from the Military Hospital Bangor, Co Antrim that doesnt appear on any UK or Ireland registrar :
    General Register Office for Northern Ireland

    explaining you cant order one online as you dont know if its registered in Northern Ireland - even on the free search there are no results for him
