Hello.

I am also researching the Fissenden family, to which I am related.  I have reached a block with Sidney James Fissenden, born 1899 died 1918 like yourself!

I understand from this thread that you found some information regarding the circumstances of his death, and wonder if you would be able to share this with me please?

Many thanks.

Welcome to Rootschat. Hopefully K8T will see this post and get back to you. At the moment The General Register Office are doing on line death certificates for 6 rather than the usual paper ones at 9.50. You could order his death certificate which will give you his cause of death.

Just use these details

Sidney J Fissenden
Birth:   abt 1899
Death registration:   Dec 1918
Age :   19
Gravesend   Kent
Volume:   2a  Page:   1566

Thank you!. 

I didn't know that the GRO were offering that - it's been a long time since I ordered a certificate!

Thanks again!

Hi Cescablue,
I apologise for not getting back to you sooner but have been away and then unwell.

Just to let you know, just in case you haven't found out that Sidney died of pnuemonia at home at 30 Edwin Street, Gravesend.

He appears in a book we have published on the fallen of Gravesend who appear on the Windmill Hill Memorial.  A photo of him appears in the book.

Hope this is of interest.
