INDIA - what does B.N.R stand for?
« on: Saturday 18 May 19 20:43 BST (UK) »
My Grt Grand Mothers 2nd Husband, Herbert James THOMPSON is listed as a guard on BNR.
Can anyone tell me what BNR is please.  I'm guessing Bengal N***** Railway
If this is the railway where should I go to view his details
Thank you

Hi, it may well be "Bengal Nagpur Railway"  :)
