    Hello

    UK
    SPOONLEY, Robert John - LAC - 1408798 - a family tree on ancestry.co.uk records that he died at Llangwyfan Sanatorium. It states he died on April 4th 1947 but that's clearly an error, as his death was registered in March!

    INDIA
    KEANE, John Joseph - Cpl - 1907337 - HQ (U) 2 Ind. Group.

    UK
    HILL, Alan John - Cpl - 646432 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at 39 Woodcroft Road, Croydon. The address is now Croydon University Hospital.

    Regards

    Simon
