Family of ....
« on: 04 May 2019 11:35:13 am »

Good morning,

While researching my family history I've come across a distant relative who served in the Royal Navy as a Stoker between 1908 and 1917. I can see the names of the Ships he served on as well as his periods of detention. Despite his character being recorded as 'Good' during the first three months of 1917 the final entry records that he 'deserted' on 24 Apr 1917 while his Ship was in Canada.

The record states 'Wife informed'.

Is there anywhere in the Royal Navy records where I might find the name of his wife?

Thank you,
