Yes, thank you Tall Al. On the 1939 gives his birthday as 6 Dec 1896, that is the wrong birthday

 for my William Norman (born 25 Oct 1895) 

I have kept him on a list I have though, to check out just in case all else fails.

Thanks again

Clutching at straws and just thinking  ::)

Is he ever mentioned in obituaries in the family?

In Percy’s army record, he isn't mentioned in the list of brothers but that is, if I recall, not long after his birth so perhaps that is the reason.
Also, the reference to him being a Student might be because of the date the will was written rather than the date of probate.

Yes I have seen that death, but how would I prove it was mine through his death certificate.

He has given his date of birthday in 1939  6 Dec 1896.

On Grand father Percy's army records which I have the originals, he only puts some of the family,
 
there was not room for them all. He doesn't put any of his sisters either.

Do you have a Lancs Fusiliers regimental number for William Norman that I, and my fellow Rootschatters, can follow for your William Norman

Got all his records form WW1. My husband is a specialist in WW1 soldiers.

It does not help me after  1918. I need after 1920 until his death.

I want to know where he died.

We know you are looking for his death and you have all his WW1 records but you didn't give William's regimental number when answering willyam question......

What occupation & address did his Army record give?
Who was the next of kin?

Please forgive me if I seem to be chiding you but, given that you are seeking the help of experienced Rootschatters (i.e. well beyond myself), I do not understand your reticence in disclosing the soldier number for your Norman William

With this key piece of information many fresh sets of eyes & minds on his service record (which I, at least, have not been able to find) may be able to evince a nugget that could lead to the beneficial outcome that you have very long sought.

In my own experience, when I eventually found the WW1 service record for my potential Grandfather, even though he had changed his name and said that he was 5 years older than he was, what was revealed dramatically (and very productively) changed the entire landscape of my research.

By the way, I should have pointed out sooner that the image associated with the earlier blackkalendar link was not that of Norman William. Given that a) he was never convicted and b) that the website had no other information regarding him - it was solely a "stock" image included for effect.

I do not know what you are implying, but I am at the present in France researching

the 9th Royal Fusiliers and do not have his number to hand. I can assure you that

there is nothing in his record that can help find him after 1920.

That's a shame because I do believe that the information contained in Norman's service record (which I [and perhaps others] have not found online when searching by name only) could well help to resolve an intriguing conundrum that has emerged from certain other information that you have provided.

The resolution of this conundrum could possibly in turn unlock the mystery of the whereabouts of  Norman after the distribution of his Father's Estate.
