    Hello

    Sgt Ernest J.M. LUCEY - 536607 - the Graves Registration Report Form lists his unit as "H.M.S. Furious."

    LAC (Pilot u/t) Norman B. MOODY - 921747 and
    LAC (Pilot u/t) Martin WILLIAMS - 1113079 - their respective Graves Registration Report Forms list their unit as 3 F.T.S., which links them to Oxford L9638

    Regards

    Simon

    Hi,

    I work for the NI War Memorial, Belfast and have been trying to find more info about Sgt Ernest J.M. LUCEY - 536607

    His death, caused by HE bomb, is registered in Belfast at Stranmillis Hospital however I am not aware of where exactly he was injured. HMS Furious was in Belfast 4/5th May during the raid before sailing to Liverpool the next day where it again experienced another raid.

    This is the first I've seen Lucey's name linked to the ship. Is there a way I can access the grave registration report form? Or if anyone can signpost me to further info it would be most appreciated.

    Hello Alan

    Welcome to the Forum. The Graves Registration Report Forms are normally (or used to be) available on the individual casualty's page on the CWGC website.

    Lucey's seems to be missing from his entry now, for some reason, maybe a victim of the website's updates:

    Try the GRO death index it may have HMS Furious listed as his unit on there. Itís 34 weeks since I added his cause of loss and I think my note book with him listed is miles away and Covid restricted !

    Thanks for the welcome Simon, longtime lurker but needed to sign up this time to ask my question.

    That's what I assumed when you said Graves Registration Report Form but no idea why his entry doesn't have one. I'll drop CWGC a message and ask. I am in touch with the church warden where he is buried so hopefully she can fill in a blank.

    I ahve his death registered here in NI that states him as 'fitter corporal RAF' that died at 'Stranmillis Hospital'.

    There are no other details relating to his unit or place of injury sadly
