Thanks very much Lynski and Andy, I will check these out.

That is someting I did not know about, the interchange of Edward and Edwin.



Lynski Report 28 Feb 2013 23:20

I cannot find a death for Edward George or a birth for Edwin George so I think you might be right Andy.


Lynski Report 28 Feb 2013 23:18

His birth -

Just a thought, Edward and Edwin are sometimes interchanged?

I am looking for the death record and burial place of Edward George Cloonan, born in London in 1882/3.

He enlisted in October 1915, aged 32 and 10 months, as Private 66967 in the Royal Army Medical Corps, and his army record shows he returned home in 1919.

He was awarded the usual 'Victory' and 'British' First World War Medals.

On enlistment he was working as a clerk, living at James Street, Rugby, Warwickshire, but enlisted at Byeford.

His next of kin was his brother Stephan Joseph Cloonan, 2 years older, and at that time living at 20 Avenue Road, Forest Gate East, London.

His mother was Susan Cloonan, born 1864 in Mile End London, and there were also siblings Mary, Arnold and James.

I have found no record of him after 1919.

I would be most grateful for any help.
