Andrew Report 5 Jan 2013 17:47

Hi, can anyone help. I am currently researching the above who was a soldier during WW1 and who is buried in Mildenhall Old Cemetery, Suffolk. I am trying to find if there are any surviving relatives still alive but have become a bit stuck. I know he had 6 brothers and 1 sister. At least 2 of the brothers fought in WW1, 1 of which did survive the war.
Can anyone direct me in the right direction for finding more info on his siblings?

Do you have Ernest with his parents and siblings on a census?

Do you have his death cert, or can you say when and where he was born?
