Any relations of Ian GRANT, died on ACHILLES in WWII??
I am looking to find out about the family of John George Grant and Rozel Florence Fox.I hope somebody out there is related, or knows something!!
John George Grant was born about 1886 in Invercargill.He married Rozel Florence Fox (b. 1 October 1894) in 1915, and by all accounts was the black sheep of the family.Any family members I have got in contact with have known very little about him, except that he was quite a bad alcoholic.
His children were Ian, Edward and Rozel.I don't know the birthdates of any of these children, except for Ian.I know his birthdate, only because of his war graves record.
Ian William Grant was born 25 November 1921, and was killed in the Battle of the River Plate in 1939.He was the first New Zealander to be killed in the war, on 13 December 1939 (at 6.40am).
If anyone knows anything about any of these people, could you please get in contact with me!
