    Default Last 1937 Ancestry Tree Lookups

    All

    I believe these 4 individuals who all died in 1937 have Ancestry Family Trees which might provide more details - Can they please be checked

    2) Aircraftman 2nd Class KILTY Patrick John Henry 523462 "Death Jan 1937 Thanet, Kent, England aged 21" (Exact Date? Cause ?)

    3) WERRY Roy Lewis 511131 Death Apr 1937 East Stonehouse, Devon, England (Exact Date? Cause ? Rank ?)

    4) Airman CHISHOLM-ELLAMS Bernard George 'Bunny' 565295 Died Hong Kong Died 30 July 1937 (Exact Cause ? Rank ?) Buried Hong Kong

    1) Leading Aircraftman WILLIAMSON Thomas Richard 512271 - his death was reported in the Grantham Journal of January 30th 1937:

    Airman's death - Mr. Thomas R. Williamson, second son of Mr and Mrs John Williamson, Park-lane, Billinghay, has died at Ruskington, aged 27. Joining the R.A.F. six years ago he was drafted out to Iraq, where his health failed and he was invalided home. Later he worked at Cranwell Camp and then entered a sanatorium. He had lived at Ruskington for the past six months. He leaves a widow, At the funeral at Billinghay a wreath was sent by friends and comrades, Cranwell Hospital.

    2) Aircraftman 2nd Class KILTY Patrick John Henry 523462 - born August 15th 1915 at Gilfach Bargoed, from his father's WW1 Service Record. Nothing else I can find, I'm afraid, but maybe someone else may come up with more.

    3) WERRY Roy Lewis 511131 - born 1907-1908 at Devonport, according to the 1911 Census. Again, othing else I can find, I'm afraid.

    4) Airman CHISHOLM-ELLAMS Bernard George 'Bunny 565295 - you had him before, but without any great success, unfortunately:
