    Thanks for taking my advice on your earlier GWF post and joining here.

    I’m sure someone will be along to help.

    It might save members time if you post any other information you have already gleaned about him.

    Members may be able to trace him on 1911 census or via Probate records after his death. His service promotions should be recorded in London Gazette.

    For the information of other members Rob is based over in British Columbia, Canada.

    CWGC here - he was 37 years of age.

    Thanks for getting back to me. I made a mistake in my original post with his death date it should read 18th January 1944. I am doing this research on behalf of his elderly Daughter who barely remembers her Father. All she could tell me was her Father was born in Motherwell Lanarkshire Scotland and the family moved to Redcar Yorkshire. Not much I'm afraid. Rob B.
