If you are looking for service records, there are numerous threads on here which include the link for applications

No-one on here can give you the info……..unfortunate, but factual

You were given the link in your thread entitled ‘Sam Rogers’ in January, and acknowledged having seen it

I knew the name rang bells

You say, "The problem was searching for death certificate"

Do you mean that you had one but lost it?
It's easy to order another copy from the GRO website (assuming he died in England or Wales):

Register (free), log in, then "Search the GRO Online Index ".
Once you have the registration reference details, click "Place an Order" and follow the instructions, entering the reference details accurately.
