In the information I sent you regarding the unnamed graves I also sent the information on Alfred Rumenap whose body was exhumed and reburied in the German War cemetery.I was curious to find out a little more about him and how he died so I ordered his death certificate.
I have attached the copy of the certificate, he was living at the H.A.E.C Hostel Lemsford, I have no Idea what the H.A.E.C stands for. He was cycling to work and was involved in a road accident and died of his injuries in St. Albans Hospital. Click Here to View Certificate
