Same name.
« on: Friday 12 March 21 23:04 GMT (UK) »
My Grandfather was named John Doyle. He served in the army ending in 1895. I am trying to get the record for my great Grandfather also having the same name.  He was born cir 19018 and also served in the army.  When I do a search only my grandfathers name comes up.  How can I get details on my Great Grandfather?

Do you mean born circa 1918?
Which army? and where are you searching?

Can you please clarify the date of birth of your great grandfather?  Also places of birth (of the John Doyles) and names of wives/parents. Plus known details for your grandfather so we know if it his his we are looking at.

What details do you know about your GGF’s service?  Eg does it say something on his marriage certificate, or baptisms of children?

Is this the same great-grandfather or do you have two with the surname Doyle?
