Hampshire & Isle of Wight / Need Help With Finding a Grave
« on: Thursday 23 July 09 09:32 BST (UK)  »

I was wondering if anyone could help ?!? ;D

Do you know what churches are around New Milton ?
I’m looking for a friend’s family member who was killed in 1943 by a bomb that hit their house.
Sadly it was a child who died, his mother was also hurt and was in hospital for quite a while. His father wasn't around at the time either - he was a Royal engineer,  and we think that they were divorced at the time.

We are really unsure of where he could be buried, the details we have(luckily from a death certificate)  -

Reg district New Forest
Sub District Lymington
County of Southampton
Brian Eric Holloway  age 6
Died 22nd Jan 1943
Where died - Mae Villa, Vincent Rd, Milton (New Milton ?) Hampshire
He was 6 years old.
Father - William A Holloway Sergeant No 1864034 Royal Engineers.
Cause of Death - Due to War Operations
Signature, descipton of informant -
F.J Beeching, Town Clerk, Lymington Town Council.
Registered on the 28th Jan 1943
Entry 242 in the registry

As you can see from the above it was registered by a Town Clerk, so we are a bit stuck as to where he could be and they is nobody in the family who knows.

If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

Kind regards,

Laois (Queens) / Guilfoyle Walsh Marriage ??

Just wondering if anyone can help ??

Im looking for a marriage record for a Hanna Guilfoyle and Martin Walsh -

I went around the long way and found a Hanna Guilfoyle married in Mountmellick Jul-Sep 1927 also separately found a Martin Walsh Married in Mountmellick Jul-Sep 1927 but I can't find a website that matches them together.
I got the info of the family search website which gives the volume and page number as the same - (volume 3, page 269) presumably that means this is the right record ?!?

Any ideas ???

Thanks for your time,

Kind regards,
