Looking for relatives of Charles McEwen of Scotland.

+2 votes

My grandmother was placed in an orphanage in England in the 1930's after her father, Charles McEwen, died. I have no info besides that he died in 1937, he was a soldier, and he was born in Scotland. He married Letticia Reynish of Wales in 1918 in  City of Westminster, Lambeth, Greater London, England

You can view a copy of their marriage entry on Ancestry via this sharing link.

For Scottish records, the best place to search is Scotlands People. You need to register for an account (free) & you are able to conduct free searches. To view the actual register copies of the full entry for births, marriages & deaths there is a very reasonable fee.

(Note: Transcription from FindMyPast)

This is probably his Naval record (also at Ancestry). 

You can also download his Navy records from the UK National Archives site (currently FREE due to Covid-19), you just need to register for an account.

There are 2 records for Charles - link 1 & link 2

Thank you!!
