    J J Williams CWGC entry in the ledgers on Ancestry.com says

    39 SFTS and died of natural causes, illness. There is a detailed reason given but I don't think we ned that level of detail.

    Bradbrook, Greaves and Norkett all appear in the Died on Active Service lists
    http://skynet.ie/~dan/war/flightsa/1...nscription.htm


    Greaves death registered in Carlisle district, aged 35
    Norkett's death registered in Pembroke district, Pembroke
    His probate calender entry does not mention death to be 'on war service' and gives place of death as Woobine House, Pembroke whihc was a workhouse or care facility of sorts in the past.
    He wsas commishioned into the Technical Branch.
