William Ward 1880-1968 Horton
« on: Friday 29 April 16 09:28 BST (UK) »
I'm trying to trace the Ward side of my family, and I have seen a photo of William and he greatly intrigues me. He married Isabella Scott in 1910 and seemingly was a coal miner to begin with. If anyone has any info on his later life it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Megan

I'm also looking for a military record for my great grandfather Joseph Ward 1894-1944 he'd of been in both World Wars married in 1914. He returned home and died as a consequence of the 2nd World War, I have tried searching for a record but had no such luck. Any ideas?

I've seen that, I've also seen a record for some form of land being in his name but can't find anything relating to it, just popped up on google.

If you are sure that Joseph Ward served in WW2 then his records will still be with the MOD. There is information and links to the necessary forms here :

https://www.gov.uk/get-copy-military-service-records/overview

The cost is 30 and the wait can be anything from 4/6 weeks to many months , depending on how busy they are.

If he died as a result of service in WW2 there should be a record here :

He definitely served in WW2, I'm not sure wether he was home on leave or discharged but he was at home when he died, he had shrapnel in his head as a result of a hit. Which then caused a haemorrhage. I'll look at those thank you very much!
