Conrad Bona, son of Otto & Letitia Bona, husband of Maud Lang.

Thanks again to Mhomac for the following info:

"Conrad Carl Bona died 20 December 1918 at Great Crosby near Liverpool.
Death is registered in Oct./Nov./Dec/ deaths register. He is listed as aged 35 years, District..West Derby..Volume 8b and page 503.

Also..
National Probate Calendar(Index of wills and administrations) 1861-1941 has recorded....
Bona, Conrad Carl of HMS Aquitania, England, Sub Lieutenant RNR died 20/12/1918 at Great Crosby near Livwerpool. Confirmation of Maud Elizabeth Lang or Bona widow. Sealed London 20 August. That must be his will "signed off" and stored somewhere or maybe someone knows better what this all means!"

And to Kinnethmont for the following:

"A medal record exists for Bona which suggests he was in the Mercantile Marine.
Nothing to show him in RNR, although he may have been
RNR men are also simply civilians, unless embodied into the RN. During WW1 civilians do not qualify as war deaths, except members of some organisations, in certain circumstances only.

That being the case Bona could only qualify for war death status if he had died whilst working under Royal Navy control, and only if he died of war related causes, generally this would involve hositle action by an enemy. He died after the war ended.

The probate record also suggests he was a civilian. It mentions HMS Aquitania. This is the Cunard liner RMS Aquitania ( sister ship of Lusitania), which was in government service as a hospital and later a troop transport. It appears she was engaged transporting Americans home immediatly after the Armistice.

You would need a DC and service details in order to get anywhere with this.
Gravestones are often wrongly detailed by families, as you will know. Often the facts were " improved " by relatives."
