Wondered if someone can help me with info on a family

James Fitzgerald born 1920-21 mother Johanna wife Nellie.

They lived in Alcester Warwickshire.James was killed in Normandy 12 August 1944.

I am sorry i cant help with other surnames what details i have are from the CWG site.

I want to get James army record but need the family details.

I found one Johanna Fitzgerald with a son James so wondered if she was unmarried.

     thank you

You can apply for the service record without having family details and you do not even need a death certificate as he died in service.
This link explains what details you will be given

But be aware that if you are seeking information that "in the very rare case where release of information from a record might be prejudicial, the applicant will be advised of the relevant Freedom of Information Act statutory exemption that applies to its non disclosure."
