I may have got the date of birth wrong. Walter Frederick Cromey seems to be a family name, (is was also the name of my Grandfather and my Uncle, it gets very confusing).
On checking, sorry Joyce, it is around 1845.
That was a great link you sent me, very interesting. My GGF was married in this country, but his wife spent a lot of time with him in Malta as one of their children was born there. Charlotte Gretrude Cromey later went to India with her brother William and married there. So I am also...
I am researching my Great Grandfather and am having trouble identifying his regiment. The abbreviated name is shown as A.H.&M.Cps. He was in Malta in 1875, 1868 and 1869. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks for your good wishes, I am certainly becoming frustrated already!!!
Perhaps there is someone out there who can tell me how to search for death certificates that don't appear to be listed, even though you know the person or people are dead!!
