Harold Thorpe / RNR records


I’ve been researching a close friends family history for the last year now but I’m completely at a dead end with her maternal grandfather, and therefore that entire leg of her tree.

I have his marriage certificate (att.) but he disappeared a few years later, after my friends mother (his daughter) was born, the family never hearing from him after that.

I’d particularly appreciate some help in understanding the format of his RNR service number, and how to find details of him from that.

I’m particularly interested in confirming his mother’s maiden name, but also what happened to him...

Thanks, Mark
