Shaun J, thank you.


Armed Forces / Death registration
« on: Yesterday at 14:37 »
I have come across an old notebook from when I first started researching the family. There is an entry for Second Lt E P J Hull who died 2 July 1918. According to the GWGC site he is buried at Abney Park Cemetery.

Unfortunately that is all I have noted down and I haven't a clue where he fits in, if indeed he does. The GRO site doesn't bring his death up so I do not know his age or first name so I could check the census.

Does anyone have any suggestions how I could investigate this further?

Many thanks.

I was using my old iPhone 5 whilst the 6 was not usable. Had that been fixed the 5 would have been recycled, once cleared of data.  Recycling the 6 is a problem.

Unfortunately there is no local Apple shop, and Iím not using public transport at present.

Many thanks to you both but problem now solved. Son got himself a new phone and I now have his previous one.

My other son who is in IT managed to bring my 6s up and running by using iTunes. Unfortunately he couldnít get it to do anything, not even a factory reset.

So it seems the battery was not to blame. At least I know it was definitely dead. Presumably the next thing is to do is find the hammer!

Thanks for that Rattus. It wasnít any colder than usual at the time.

Perhaps itís just time for my phone to succumb to a known problem and not worth carrying on with. Itís a shame really because Iíd been happy with it till now.

Thank you both for your replies.

I donít think it has been dropped but as it is always in my pocket I suppose I could have knocked it against something.

Your comment re update is interesting mumjo. I asked my son if he had any ideas and he said it sounds as though it is stuck trying to do an update.

As you say Gadget, a call in to the Apple shop.

Has anyone else had this happen to them?

Phone fine, working normally, then it suddenly shut down while I was entering a calendar event. Logo came back after a few seconds and then the number prompt. It worked for a while then did it again.

I had put it on charge in case the battery was low although it shouldnít have been as it showed over 60% a couple of hours previously and I hadnít used it.

The situation has gone from there to now where all I can get out of it is if itís plugged into charge when I get the logo coming up and going off, if not plugged in it stays completely blank. The number prompt is no more.

I really canít think why it should be fine and a couple of hours later completely dead.

Any ideas as to whatís happened?

Many thanks to you both.

I think I will let it renew and see what happens.
