    I have been trying to find out what happened to John Nunn`s eldest brother Frederick Charles Nunn,born in Ipswich in 1883, the son of Herbert and Hannah Nunn. He was married to Kathleen Knights of Wymondham.
    On various Ancestry trees he is marked as being killed on 30/09/1915 and commemorated at the Loos Memorial at Dud Corner cemetery, Pas -de- Calais, France.
    However on further research and checking on this site it would appear that he is not the same Frederick Nunn.
    These men were my Great Uncles and the older brothers of my paternal grandmother, she never spoke of them or the war and there is no-one left to ask.
    If anyone has any information I would be very grateful,
    many thanks Jayne Moorhouse
