Just came across this useful website - it lists all the RAF bombers lost in WW2 with their crews and a short explanation of the loss. Very useful for researching how someone died and who he died with etc. Searching by date of death is the easiest.

What a brilliant website! I'll be going through the names on my WW2 HBOS list and cross-checking this.

Thanks for posting the link.

I've been struggling to find out more information about my grandfather's half brother Allan Henry Ross, who was shot down on 31 March 1944 while on the Nuremburg raid. He was a 22-year-old flight sergeant. His memorial is in the Durnbach Cemetery, Bad Tolz, Bayern.

I hope, via the link you've given here, to be able to find out a bit more about him and his comrades.

Thanks again for the link.

Liz

Well - a brilliant hour or so later, I now know the details I was looking for. Thanks again for the link.

I should add that (in my experience) this site is limited to operational losses and very few (if any) bombers lost in training are listed.

Not sure yet but it looks a though this excellent site may have gone.
I understand that the "author" died a year or so ago and there has been a question mark over how long the site would remain funded.
It's going to be a big loss.

I believe that I now have a full set of books covering all of the aircraft listed. This is no replacement for the indexing and search facility of the website but if anyone needs a lookup (I need surname and date as a minimum) then I will do my best.

I'm sorry to read that it has gone. It was a fantastic site and luckily we have recorded some of the entries here.

That's bizarre, i knew of the website form its listing here a few years ago but only went on it for the first time on Monday, now it's no more, very strange timing.

Derek.
