Charles William Drury (1856 - 1913) was already done (Drury-896).  Found his wikitree entry easier in a general internet search than through the wikitree search mechanism.

I have one relative who MAY have been killed in the Boer war - but am unable to substantiate anything so far. He was just a private, but you can guys can find anything to confirm his family on the Boer War record?

Thanks.

United Kingdom, Militia Service Records
Name George Burrows
Event Type Military Service
Event Year Range 1806-1915
Event Place United Kingdom
Birthplace Cheshire
Birth Year (Estimated) 1881
Citing this Record

"United Kingdom, Militia Service Records, 1806-1915," database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KHYF-XPS : 10 December 2017), George Burrows, ; from "Militia Service Records 1806-1915," database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing LANCASHIRE FUSILIERS, WO96, WO 96, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

Well the place and year of birth are correct so that does match up so far. Thank you.
