    Hi Elaine, Welcome to the site. Could not find anything further than you have already on your grandfather. However there are three family trees listed on Ancestry with his basic details in them, all private but managed to access one to try and locate a wee photograph for your mum. Unfortunately no certs or photos showed up, not sure if you are a member on there but happy to contact them on your behalf if you wish. 1st member, Carol Keith, 2nd, Karen Wilson, 3rd Susan McWilliams

    That is correct Vernon - the CR10 relates to the Fourth Register of Seamen and that card specifically 1918/1919.

    Thank you for this information which will make interesting reading for my Mum. Unfortunately he died in his 40's two days after a work related accident. This resulted in a fatal accident report but they deemed the death to be not linked to his work accident.

    Thank you Hugh for the update. I knew it was a long shot but was worth a try. However always interesting to learn facts about the Merchant Navy role in the war.

    Thank you Marian. I am a member of Ancestry so will have a look at these trees. Interestingly enough the surname McWilliams is also part of my tree. This is maiden name of my great granny on my Dad's side. Much appreciated .

  9. Thanks Marian Gray, Doc Vernon thanked for this post
