    Richard and Albert Alvey in Canada

    Hi Everyone

    I have just found a distant rellies WWI Army records. George Alvey 1889 Nottingham

    It says his next of kin are Richard Alvey and Albert Edward Alvey address Raymore, PO Sask Canada. I think this was filled in when he joined up.

    He was killed in 1917 and there was another filled in still giving his next of kin as Richard and Albert in Canada also his sister Annie Hopewell. This doc is date stamped 1919.

    I have looked on Ancestry.com and there is something on Canadian WW1 Soldiers mentioning Albert with relative Richard but it is locked to me.

    Richard Henry Born 1881 Nottingham

    Albert Edward Born 1879 Nottingham

    Does anyone have access to it please.

    Also any ideas about passenger lists I have looked on Find my past and Ancestry.

    Thanks Lin

    If you put "Canada" in your thread title, someone with access to records may see it.

    Is he in the British Army or the Canadian Expeditionary Force?

    If he is in the CEF then you can obtain these through Canada without needing to go through Ancestry. I had 3 who joined CEF and I obtained all three through Canada, though some time ago now. It sounds to me as though having next of kin in Canada, he possibly joined the army in Canada and therefore joined the CEF?

    Try the website below to see if you can get any help.

    If he is British Army then it will have to be either TNA or Ancestry.

    Found an Albert Alvey at this site with his attestation papers, any use?

    At the bottom click on front of form and back of form for the Attestation Papers

    I had a very helpful contact with the Saskatchewan public records people a year or so ago. Well worth a try. There are two offices, each holding different records.

    Thank you everyone for your help. I will look at the web sites now.

    Thanks Light for the attestation papers I have managed to enlarge them and are very clear.

    It says he was in the 3rd Notts and Derby Reg so might find something else about him.

    Thanks again Lin

    I have just looked at the papers and they are definitely him so thanks a lot.

    Uncle John have made a note of the site and will look at it later.

    Seems he didn't join up until 1918.

    Thanks Lin

    Lin have you got a Denis Alvey born 2 Sep 1894 Notts in your tree? He lived at 52 Mayfield Rd Nottingham.

    I think this is him with mother Harriet on the 1901c..RG13; Piece: 3172; Folio: 106; Page: 39

    His papers are on Ancestry as well. Just yell if you want them
