Hi

How do you know if your ancestors medals were returned? All my grandparents are gone so nobody to ask.

His medal index card would show if any medals were returned.

This link from Imperial War Museums website explains where the medal cards can be found.

Your wife can apply seeing as she is a great granddaughter of the soldier.

As far as I'm aware any blood relation can apply as nok.
I personally applied for my grandfathers returned medals even though I wasn't the oldest grandson.
