Hi my name is Anthony Charles Roach, my Grandfather died in the disaster involving HMS Curacoa and the Queen Mary. I have just watched a documentary on the incident ( sky history channel) . My father never got to meet his father, and i my grandfather. I have tried to find information and photo's of him, so that i may learn of
Thankyou, yours sincerely
The records of British RN personnel are held at 3 different locations, depending primarily on the time when
In both of the above archives, only written enquiries from next-of-kin are accepted, and a search fee is charged.
I would start at No 2 and seek details of your Grandfather's naval service.
I doubt that you would find any photos of him at this distance in time since the tragedy.
