WWII In Memoriam / Re: Private Sidney Hudson 977178 8th July 1944 Aged 24

Very true, exactly how I feel about Sidney's life. Unfortunately my grandad died when I was 5 so I never got to chat to him about Sidney, the story about him seeing Sidney off at Aylsham Station was what he told my dad many years later so it must have stuck with him. It is one of the reasons, I knew I had to make this trip to Sidney's grave for my Grandad  :)

Hi, I recently acquired my Great x 3 Grandfathers will and whilst I can make some of it out there are a few bits I can't decipher so I was wondering whether anybody would like to give it a go?.

Many thanks

WWII In Memoriam / Private Sidney Hudson 977178 8th July 1944 Aged 24

Sidney was my Grandad's cousin and he was posted with the Lincolnshire Regiment. When Sidney left for France, my Grandad (nicknamed RT) saw him off at Aylsham Train Station and the last thing Sidney said to him was 'Well this is it RT, you won't see me again' and unfortunately he was right Sidney did not return. He died on the 8th July 1944 in Herouville as a result of Operation Charnwood part of Operation Overlord and is buried in Ranville War Cemetery. Me and my father are very fortunate to be visiting Sidney's grave for the first time in three weeks when we go on a D-Day landing beaches tour and I plan to take a poppy cross which has been on my Grandad's grave and place it on Sidney's, they were both a similar age and I like to think that they were close. Will definitely be a poignant visit.

World War Two / Next of kin? *COMPLETED MANY THANKS*
« on: Sunday 13 August 17 11:50 BST (UK)  »
My paternal Grand Uncles both fought in the second world war.. Neither married or had children and have both since died. I am just wondering whether my father would be classed as next of kin if I decided to apply for their records?. My father has older cousins who i think would be probably be classed as next of kin but he has never known or met them and I do not even know if they are still alive. Many thanks

Norfolk Lookup Requests / Re: Maria Smith

Robert Grays profession was labourer on their marriage certificate and his fathers name was Thomas who was also a labourer. The only Robert Gray I have found so far is one that was living in Wroxham (same as mentioned on wedding certifcate) before and after the marriage and his fathers name matches the one on the marriage certificate Thomas. This makes me think, it is the right Robert Gray but its just strange I haven't found him with Maria after they were married. Not found death record as of yet 😊
