    Death record for soldiers ...

    ... who died in the Great War - are they registered as normal if they died when 'home' or do I need to look elsewhere?

    Yes there will be a GRO certificate if they died here, I have a few in my local history project, some died in UK military hospitals, others at their home address following wounds or illness.

          Yes, Lin - I have one who is; also one who died in early 1919 in hospital, who is also on CWGC site. He died in hospital of pneumonia - think the latter may have been a victim of Spanish flu.

              Thanks, found where he is buried on the CWGC! Might have to send away for his DC as I like to know 'where' my war dead died and what of IYSWIM!?
              Thanks again
