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

No promotion. "Warrant Officer Class 2" is quite consistent with being a sergeant-major in the Royal Artillery.

Agreed, beat me to it! 

Rank was Warrant Officer Class II (became WO2, Arabic numerals, in the 60s/70s if memory serves me right), appointment in that rank was Battery Sergeant Major, form of address, Sergeant Major.

Well done Yatton harry - evidence is all!

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.

How interesting!

I wonder who put forward the suggestion that he had poison in his stomach, requiring this adjournment and his stomach to be analysed?

It refers to a fatal road crash whilst motorcycling, but this adjourned summary doesn't say whether or not any other vehicle was involved?

 ----------

I went to an Inquest once and gave evidence, but another person was badgering me (in the intervals) to say he had illegal drugs in his system.

I refused to have words put in my mouth and refused to contaminate my evidence with such an unsubstantiated claim.

After the Inquest I was sent the PM and Toxicology Report which confirmed:- there was NO illicit or illegal substance in his body, only the correct amount of a prescribed medication.

 ----------

This makes me wonder why people turn up at an Inquest or inquiry and attempt to suggest something, proved by the evidence to be totally incorrect.
