What caused the death of and/or what was the place of death registration for:

Warner has Kirkland on L1207 crashing near Malton Yorkshire on 23/24/Mar/41. The registration at Rydale is right for such an incident.

The crash occured about a mile north of Great Habton, which is approx 4 miles NW of Malton, Yorkshire. Kirkland however was thrown from the aircraft in the air and his body found some distance from the crash site.
