Hi Dave,

If documentation means death certificate, the FRC have seperate indexes for the war dead. A possilbilty would be to look through the overseas deaths on findmypast.

Thanks for the reply Julie,

I was really after any WW1 information, particularly on the battles around Fricourt, Somme.

I know some people have access to War / battalion/company diaries, which may mention the day he died and what was happening on that day.

Thanks again :)

Dave
