Further to the comments from Maureen & Infosending.

From personal experience and comments from one or two others on these boards, despite what is implied in the notes and guidance on the MoD web site and elsewhere, it should be noted that even if place & date of birth and proof of death can be provided together with regiment[s] and known sub units, without either a person’s army/service number or their National Insurance number any application will probably fail and just be a £30 [GBP] donation to HMG.

Also even with an army/service number, for some who received a disabling injury such that they were awarded a disability pension, their records were sent to the Ministry of Pensions/Pensions Agency at Blackpool and were subsequently lost or destroyed, so weren’t returned to the MoD.
