Hi if anyone could give me a rough date of this half picture i have I'm believing it to be of my grandfathers school picture (but there is no writing on it), he was born 1917 and lived in Govan Glasgow the school could be St Saviours or St Anthony's in Govan it is on a cardboard type paper and was in his belongings after he died in 2005 so it must be a family member the dating of it would help to narrow it down possibly thank you all in advance.

This picture of my great grandfather John Crawford one of his daughters and grand children and daughter in law has just been forward to me I believe it is around 1938 as he died in 1939 and going off the youngest child's age, my mother was born 1939 the same year her grandfather died and this will be her first picture she has ever seen of him so after 78/79 years it would be a great pleasure to show her this and can I thank everyone in advance for any help.....yours Harry

Armed Forces / Help to find death certificate.
« on: Monday 05 September 16 12:08 BST (UK)  »
After the great help of my last post regards Edward Crawford WW1 I have been passed army papers regards his brother Charles Crawford (b 1882) the family thought he died during the 1st WW but it seems he died prior to 1914 in fact according to the papers in 1908 but I cant seems to locate a death certificate or cause of death I wonder if anyone could share some light the papers are out of focus and some details seem wrong ( birth date on one page seems to young) but the main details of enlisting fathers address are all correct though it seems as though he may have enlisted two or more times any help as always is very much a god send thank you in advance.
