Finding an ancestor who was MIA

Roberta's Question:
Hi, hoping you can help. My great aunt's husband was in WW2 and was killed. She got a telegram saying he was dead. But I can't find his death and she said no one ever told her where he was buried. Can you help? His name was Jimmy Cunningham

Olive Tree Answer: Hello Roberta. I think your best bet is to check the online World War two MIA (Service Personnel Not Recovered Following World War II) and Service Personnel Buried at Sea During World War II for your great uncle. Be sure to check under the name James, as Jimmy would be your family's nickname for him.
