World War Two / Re: Look up request for RAF records
« on: Monday 29 November 21 11:25 GMT (UK)  »

Also he I want to pursue getting his RAF details from the MOD do I really have to be a relative? and do I need to get his death certificate (as that's going to be unlikely) although I do know of a Reginal John Fuller born 1917 who died 2008.

Regards John

I managed to get an Army service record for my mum's first husband; I did try to find any NOK but several of his family had died in the Blitz. I think some details were withheld but I had birth/baptism/marriage and death details from earlier research.

Usually with twins it will state that & give time of birth.
This doesn't say either, it gives a time of 3h. 35 mins. then what looks like A at 6.

Could it be 3.35am?

Still-births  were not registered.

My grandpa gave an incorrect date of birth on 1939 register.....wrong date/month/year.  He was very surprised when he qualified for a pension....he was older than he thought he was.

Have you searched for a baptism record?  That might give more accurate details but  I have 3 date of birth records for a great aunt;  her birth certificate, her baptism entry and her death certificate ......all show slightly different dates.  ::)

Ah! Okay, that makes sense. I assume that would suggest a stillbirth or miscarriage rather than an abortion?

Stillbirths have a separate register which is not online. 

Miscarriage or abortion would only be noted in her medical records.

Have you thought of looking at newspaper archives for advertisements?

He would be 53-54 but I'm doubtful only because he is on the electoral roll in 1904

The electoral roll could have been compiled in 1903 and details on death certificates were only as good as the informant's knowledge of the deceased.
