WW1 Internees at Alexander Palace
« on: Sunday 14 September 14 10:39 BST (UK) »
For years I've been trying to find out more about a Karl Hethei, born in Germany in c 1877, came to the UK in c 1898, and who was interned in 1915.  After the War he seems to disappear from any further records, but was thought to have died c 1950.
 I have just found what appears to be an Index card on the ICRC site which quotes "Liste Officielle No 59 23/10/1915"  and "Page de notre register ? LV111 2".  Does anyone know how to use this to try and access more detailed records?
Thanks in anticipation...!

"Ax P" would mean he was interned at Alexandra Palace in London.

There is an option at the ICRC site for searching for further info once you find this record.  You can use the data in the bottom right box of this index card to search for more info.

However, your record is sparse compared to some.

Where do you think he died? Was he sent back to Germany? Did he leave children in England with the Hethei surname or did they call themselves something else?

Sorry, I don't know. 
The record I have for my own internee does say that he was sent back to Germany, but this one does not specify.  It might be possible to find more info by using the info in bottom right corner as I said.
