red mail Ernest Morgan
I am searching for an Ernest A. Morgan who was born 1885 in Newfoundland. He enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force and severed in WW1. He had an injury in France in 1916 and was eventually invalided back to Halifax, Canada and discharged the Forces in 1918. During his stay at Ontario Military Hospital in Orpington, Kent he requested to be discharged in England but was returned to Canada. I have reason to believe that he returned to England and died approximately 1925. I found a listing as follows: Ernest Morgan, b ~1886, date of registration June 1925, age 39, Registration District St. Martin, Inferred County: London, Vol 1a, Page 490. Does anybody have access to a record that may give a bit more information? I would like to order a death cert but want to be sure it is him before I do. Thanks in advance.
