Hi

I found my 3xgreat grandmothers brother George Brain in Aldershot in Surrey in the 1861 census, a soldier born Bletchingdon, Oxon. The census says they were in the 25th regiment, Kings Own Borders.

I searched on FMP in the Advanced Search by regiment and no record seemed to appear of George. I cannot find him after the 1861 census at all although a George Brain death was registered in Greenwich district in the Sep quarter of 1862. Could he have died in the Army as a young man?

Ben
