    Hi Henk
    Mary Baldwin,26,registered at Buckrose, E Yorkshire
    Robson,29, registered at Hove which is in Sussex not Essex
    Fullman-Gentle and Patricia Shevlin didn't come up on the register but both are Londoners and are buried in London Cemeteries so they could have been taken home for burial from outside England and Wales.I did look for Shelvin following Dennis' post
    Regards
    Dick

    Thanks all for your help. Let's wait for Hugh or Dakota whether they have more info on the Canadian Pilot George ROBSON.

    Hello

    AC1 Eric G. FULLMAN-GENTLE - 1514141 - the Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he died at about 2.30 p.m. at the entrance to the Techical Site of R.A.F. Macmerry, due to multiple injuries received in a road accident.

    P/O (Pilot) George E. ROBSON - RCAF J/8968 - the Graves Registration Report Form lists his unit as 2 (P) A.F.U. His R.C.A.F. service record on ancestry.co.uk includes a copy of the inquest into his death, which includes the following:

    George Eyre ROBSON on the 13th day of April at 55, Sackville Gardens [Hove] was found dead and that the cause of death was suffocation from the smouldering ignition of a settee on which he was sleeping, and his clothing, being set alight by a burning cigarette. So dying by accident. And so further say that death was due to asphyxia.

    The George E Robson, R.C.A.F. mentioned in post #3 as being reported missing is surely:
