Thank you all for your help.

Don't worry Jackie

- there was a different query earlier this week. Although someone else could find the reference on Scotlandspeople, even by following their instructions, it didn't work for me :-0

I keyed in John Driscoll Statutory Deaths born 1907 plus or minus a year and did a search.
I was then given a number of people with the name.
I knew that you were looking for the Greenock area so I then narrowed it down.
You will be able to get a copy of his death on line

Thanks Dougie. Why couldn't I find it?

Thanks. I have searched Www. Cwgc but to no avail. I will have another go at Scotland's People.

Presumably you've looked on Scotlandspeople?

With a free search 1911 - 2005, there are no records for John D, but
30 marriages and 13 deaths as plain John Driscoll.

As you probably know - Scotlandspeople is free to search, by pay to view - no subscriptions :-0

Is John listed on anyone elses tree on this site? If so, have you contacted them?


Jackie Report 11 Apr 2013 11:53

Thanks. I will give it a try.

If he died during WW2 or then look for him at

He would have been too young for service during WW1 but could have served during WW2.

John D Driscoll 1907, born in Greenock Renfrewshire. Brother Thomas 1913-1980. Parents James and Helen.
I have found these in the 1911 Scottish census but can't find any more information. Any suggestions as to where I can look? Thought maybe he died in action.
