HMS Dido crewman A.G. or G.A. Burgess search

Discussion in 'The War at Sea' started by twinotterpilot, Aug 23, 2020.

  1. Good morning. Wondering if anyone may have access to crew lists or other records to search for my uncle who supposedly served on HMS Dido. He passed away a number of years ago and received his service medals for care. I am unable to find his service number and was hoping someone may have information that I can put in a formal request for his records. I live in Canada, so any in person visit to any UK location is not really in the cards. Many thanks in advance.

  3. Tim. Thanks for the quick response. Unfortunately due to many circumstances, I do not have access to a death certificate, and I apologize. I should have stated that fact. I have a date of death and can provide a web link to a cremation notice. Thin that will be enough? Although his wife, my aunt is still alive, I don't want to get her involved as is stirs up memories that will upset her at this age and with her general health. I was trying to bypass her. There are no children in the family.

    You can get a UK Death Certificate (assuming death was in UK) online but I'm not sure of the link.
