    Default Flt Lt John Tayleur Died May 6 1956 How?

    Hello to all

    I am trying to find out please, the circumstances of the death of Flt Lt John Lovett Tayleur 125738. He is listed on the Armed Forces Memorial Roll Of Honour as staioned at RAF Swinderby, died aged 33 on 06/05/1956 and is buried in Biggin Hill Burial Ground , Kent.
    I cannot find any aircraft crashes listed for that date, or for Suez or any other possible conflicts. I would be pleased to hear if anyone has any details of this pilot.
    Thanks
    Paul Lovell

    The Times In Memorium' records that he 'died suddenly at Chislehurst'

    Default Circumstances of death

    He is listed in the Roll of Honour (St Clement Danes Church) but not on the memorial wall at the AFM Alrewas because his death was not caused by his service. That is, he did not die in a crash etc but died of natural causes or whilst on leave for example.

    Nothing sinister, probably a car accident or heart attack or something of that sort.
