    Ancestry look up please

    I only have FMP. On ancestry a search on military records for John Cattell (no middle name) brings up 3 results. Would some kind person please look them up for me? The man I am looking for was born in 1899 in the West Bromich region.

    There are no John Cattell's on the WW1 lists on Ancestry or are you looking at another country?

        I selected 'search' then 'Military Records' then entered John Cattell. There are 20 on the first page but only 3 with no middle name or initial. These are:

        NAME: John Cattell
        BIRTH: year - Stafford
        MILITARY: year

        NAME: John Cattell

        The last two might be a duplication of the same record.

        His name was definitely John with no other Christian names.

              The one above with service history, the papers are in a really bad state but I did find a date so I don't think this is your man, it's dated 1885, but this is in with the WW1 service records.

                    I was wondering about the Arthur John Cattell someone found. Handsworth runs into Hockley.
