I'm looking at deaths (1917) where the RD name is "Service Returns". Can anyone shed any light to what the ref relates eg 126/AF 152, 116/AF 83, etc? Thank you.

Was it a death during WW1?  Was the person serving in the Armed Forces?

The first number is the number of the volume. Then comes AF which I have always assumed meant Armed Forces. The last number is the page on which the record is listed.
