Mixed results from me, sorry!

Single, aged 27
Died January 13th 1933 at 5.20 p.m. at the Western Infirmary, Glasgow.

Robert John Grant - struggling with him too, sorry.
William Bramwell Dodd - a couple of the family trees on ancestry record that he died on October 8th 1933 at Salisbury. Born August 6th 1907 at Moreton, Shropshire.
Joseph Dunning 564138 - struggling with him too.
Edmond Stanley McKay 510001 - struggling with him too.
James Frederick George Kelley - the inquest into his death was reported in the Peterborough Standard of November 3rd 1933. It reocrds that Leading Aircraftman James Frederick George Kelly [sic] , aged 20 of Sutton bridge Aircraft Station, died at 5.55 a.m. on Monday, October 29th 1933, some 12 hours after being admitted to Peterborough Hospital with injuries sustained in an accident on Sunday, October 28th.
His motorcycle had collided with a car near Norman Cross brickyards, after seemingly misjudging a bend and crossing over to the wrong side of the road. He was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Kelly, of 27 Dean Street, Dorking, and was serving a five year term in the R.A.F. (their phrase - it makes it sound like a prison sentence!).
A verdict fo 'Accidental death' was recorded at the inquest.
Baptism records show he was born on January 10th 1913, and baptised at Fulham, son of Frederick and Phyllis Emily Kelley.
