    Hi Henk

    McGrath is not listed in England/Wales and 2751 where based at Sullom Voe, which is probably where he died.

    Hello

    The Statutory Deaths Register on the Scotland's People website records that he died at about 7.50 p.m. at Mossbank, Delting, Shetland, due to an accidental gunshot wound to the chest.

    Regards
