    Hello

    UK
    GRANT, Mairi - LACW - 473130 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that she died at 10.50 p.m at Aberdeen City Hospital due to pulmonary TB.

    GIBSON, Lilian - ACW2c - 2163474
    and
    SCOTNEY, Kathleen Joan - ACW2c - 216347

    Their deaths were reported in several newspapers at the time. The Dundee Courier of November 19th 1947 reported that they were killed when their R.A.F. car left the road at Runnymede and ran into the River Thames on the night of November 11th. Verdicts of Accidental death were recorded.

    UK
    SAUNDERS, Arthur Walter - AC2c - 410295 - there are two Arthur W. Saunders on the Civil Registration Death Index: one born abt. 1889, death registered Weymouth and the other born abt. 1915, death registered Bromley. Nothing on the CWGC website entry to indicate which one, apart from the mention of Weymouth Crematorium.

    SHELDON, Desmond - LAC - 1013216 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at The Infirmary, Warrington.

    STUTTLE, Arthur Edward - W/O - 357360 - the National Probate Calendar records that he died at the R.A.F. Hospital, Wroughton.

    OLBRICH, Karl Friedrick - GAF - registered Amersham, Bucks.

    Regards
