I am helping a friend research her father who was born in 1917. The only document she has, of his, is his marriage certificate...giving his name, father's name and name of spouse and profession.
He was a Navy Stoker with a service number starting with D/KX and followed by six digits. He married in Birmingham, in 1944. There is believed to be a connection to Canada.
Can I get information from his Navy service record if his date of death is unknown?
