John Tunbridge, No:1561, 43rd Regiment of Foot


Active member

I'm hoping that someone just maybe able to help me with some research I'm doing in regards to a John Tunbridge, my 3 x Great Grandmother's second husband.

While I do have some records and information on him it is rather spare. The main reason will be that he did die at Fort St George, Madras, India in 1854. I have the WO12/5609 which states his death date and particulars such as service number, rank. I also have the Parish Church record of his burial. What I would like to know, could there be some sort of attestation record which would indicate more personal information, such as where born, attestation date, age, and general description etc. Would there be something available in the British Regimental Records concerning this from India? Why I ask this, is that I do have exactly those records concerning my 3 x Great Grandfather, who died in Canada in 1842, he being the first husband.

I look forward to any suggestions or thoughts you may have.
