Hi

This is the death cert I bought. The wife is not Louisa Poll.

Where would I find Royal Artillery service records ?

John

What is the name of the wife in the death certificate? His service record does not appear to have survived. Upwards of 60% were destroyed by enemy action in WW2.

Quote from York Register Office

The death entry here of John Thomas Knaggs in 1925 does not meet all the details that you stated. He is aged 45, but no wife is named and the address although in the North East is not Skelton Green Cleveland.

Thank you all for your perseverance, I was hoping someone else might have picked up some snippet of info I haven't.
