No, I have only this week known of his existence. I am Australian and up until now my research has mostly been done on another site.

I do know that his name was Sidney......not Sydney.

Thank you..........I had been given this information from family in England, so did presume it was correct BUT yes his parents are as you have said.

Are either of you related to him?

Sidney and Sydney do seem to be interchangeable. I've seen that before, that's why I looked for the other spelling.

If he died after 1969 then his death can be searched for by his date of birth

Well, thank you for your time in doing this, I am extremely grateful. I have looked in the search engines and not found what you have. I am a pay as you search member. Are there more search options available to full members?

jax

jax Report 23 May 2012 05:28

We have used free sites for what we have found for you as mentioned Freebmd and I used

to look for war deaths

Most of the people who help on these boards are not full members, I am just a standard member of this site
