What were the places of death registration for:

A - Died on active service:
Cpl Richard ROBERTS - 1524115 - age 33, and
Cpl Edmund W. WHEELER - 933363 - age 29.

B - Not found in Flight archives:
G/Cpt Frederick G. SHERIFF - OBE - MC (probably died in RAF Hospital Cosford).

C - Looking ONLY for the place of death registration of ACW1 Marguerite B. BURGGE - 2014522, based at Tangmere; I've all info on the sad unnatural death of this lady.

D - Furthermore looking for GRO-listing of:
F/Lt Harold W. AVES - 63999 - buried Bne War Cem., Algeria, who died of wounds or injuries received on active service, and
F/Sgt Frederick M. PAGE - 974033 - buried Nassau War Cem., Bahamas, who died on active service.

Hi Henk
Marguerite Burge,22,as Dennis says is registered at Chichester in the 2nd Qtr of 1943.If you have her death as unnatural then the delay probably springs from a Coroner's or Police investigation,perhaps both

For the record, she was found with severe head injuries and stab wounds in a hedge near Goodwood, and died soon afterwards in hospital in Chichester. On July 10th 1943, Charles Arthur Raymond, a French-Canadian soldier, was executed at Wandsworth Prison for her murder.
