Hi Mark,
I thought that was an odd statement too.  We shall never know, but can't help feeling that something else was going on here.

Thanks so much ShaunJ and MaxD, You learn something new everyday. Old as I am, I didn't know these terminologies.

Sorry to have had the wrong info to start with even so.

Mark, Thanks,
My research has been quite thorough and John Alfred Martin is buried in our church nearby his family home.

2. Burial looks to be at a Church, have you also checked the Churchyard / Parish Burial Register. Very occasionally they have extra words (above what IWGC / CWGC note in their records), like body from ___________ or found washed up at ____________ etc., or Abode might his Base or temporary residence.
The Church by 1940 were required to record the burial too.
Every record needs checking? Is it online anywhere and don't use full names. ----------
Parish Burial Registers sometimes have additional snippets?
The Churchyard Sexton Book (if it survives) may say where the body was from?

I can see that the attachment shows Kent Messenger (WW1) is there simply a  Kent Messenger or
 Kent Messenger(WW2) ?

Hi Shaun J

have joined and used the phrase John Alfred Martin, Kent Messenger and the date and I have 'no records found'

Try just searching for the phrase "John Alfred Martin"

Please see  that I used the phrase "John Alfred Martin" : I have used onoly the date: I have used only the year - but I still get as attached.

Hi jim, That again is what I was told by someone also researching this chap. Yes it is WarDen Point. I made an error and tried to correct one of my posts, but it doesn't seem to have worked - ie carried forward.
