Hi

How do you know if your ancestors medals were returned? All my grandparents are gone so nobody to ask.

His medal index card would show if any medals were returned.

This link from Imperial War Museums website explains where the medal cards can be found.

As far as I'm aware any blood relation can apply as nok.
I personally applied for my grandfathers returned medals even though I wasn't the oldest grandson.
