    Hello

    KNEALE, William Herbert Radcliffe - Cpl - 537471 - from his entry on FindaGrave.com:

    Isle of Man Examiner, Friday, April 12, 1940; Page: 10
    CORPORAL BURIED WITH MILITARY HONOURS
    Full military honours were accorded to a young corporal of the R.A.F. whose funeral took place at Lezayre on Wednesday. He was William Herbert Kneale, aged 27 years, nephew of the late Mrs J. R. Christian, of 18. Strand Street, Ramsey. He served in the marine section of the R.A.F. and after continued ill health he entered a hospital in England where he died last week-end. His remains were brought to the Island on Tuesday and the funeral left Strand Street for service on Wednesday at St. Paul's Church. The service in Church was conducted by the Rev. M. W. Harrison, M.A., C.T.C. (Vicar) and was fully choral. The boy choristers led the singing of the hymn "Abide with me," Mr T. J. Mullineux being the organist. At the graveside at Lezayre a last salute was fired and the Last Post was sounded by buglers.


    His death was registered at West Cheshire.

    Regards
