How does one search these records. I know that my grandparents were naturalised in 1945-1946.

Arthur Raymond Turner AIF

I am trying to find when Arthur died ( and any issue).

He mother was Lydia Turner of Beechworth Vic. (not Beechwood NSW!)

World War One records mix-up

 Just wanted to advise that while doing some family history research I have come across a file which actually has the service records for two family members both by the name of William Britten - they are an uncle and his nephew. William Britten's (snr) service number is 2580 3773 (49th Battalion) and his next of kin was his father, Richard Britten. William snr was 42 years 8 mths and a widower when he enlisted and his nephew was only 23 years of age.

Is there somewhere on your site…
