    I know this is taking a liberty but please can someone look up something for me on ancestry. Sidney E Horsfall who I now believed died in WW2 was in the RAF.

    Many many thanks
    Rob

    Where are you hoping to find him, Rob? I don't think Ancestry has RAF records. And wasn't his first name spelled Sydney?

          I looked for his birth reg yesterday and couldn't see it, but maybe this is the one?

          Births Jun 1914
          HORSFALL Sydney [E_] Burton Bradford 9b 1[35]5

          This is how it's been transcribed on FreeBMD and it's the only Sidney or Sydney with the right middle initial within a five year span. Fits for age with the death record.

          I think the page number should be 135, though if you need the cert I wold suggest getting it checked.

          Apologies if you have this already!

              I did find that Sidney Edward Horsfall was born March 3, 1914 in Bradford,Yorkshire. He was a member of the Royal Aero Club #18161 Tricketts Cross Farm in Ferndown Dorset, a farmer, and registered in the Bournemouth Flying Club October 5, 1939. That was the only ancestry record I could find for him. Hope this helps.
