  • Confusing or what??

    Find My Past has an entry on British Armed Forces and Overseas Deaths and Burials under the section. *Index - Deaths and Births reported in 1921, 1922 and 1923".

    There is the name of a deceased person being E. Greaves or Chama/Shama with a date in 1921.

    The transcription states it was a death at sea during March 1923.

    I am at a loss trying to understand the difference in surnames. I cannot find an Ancestry entry relating to either surname.

    I would welcome any suggestions please.

    The transcript is inaccurate. The date is 1921 and Chama is the name of the ship.
    Did you see these two other references?
