I'm trying to find out what happened to Gunner Hugh Kelly, who married an ancestor of mine in Plumstead in 1877. All we have about him is that the was a gunner in the RHA in Plumstead at the time of marriage, and his father was Peter Kelly, a blacksmith. We believe we have identified a child of this union, who died at age 7 months in 1878. After that the family simply seems to disappear. We have considered that they may have gone overseas, or he may have gone alone, as there is some evidence of his wife perhaps having an illegitimate child in 1896, and another in a Workhouse in 1898. We have wondered if he might have been killed in the Zulu Wars. Is there any list of the dead from the Zulu Wars? Is there any way of finding out what Regiment of the RHA he might have been in? I'm assuming he was at the Royal Arsenal, but that's just a guess.

Hi FJH.

I have checked the Medal Roll and I am unable to find a H. Kelly or H. Kelley listed.

Thanks for checking the medal rolls guys. I'm assuming that if he had been killed over there he would have gotten a medal posthumously? Of course he might have gone anywhere in the world, and never returned, so I first have to try to find out his battery and service number.

Thanks, 1879, yes the third image is the correct one, citing Oct-Dec 1877 Woolwich Vol: 1d Page: 1487. I also have a copy of the hand-written marriage certificate, where he is shown as "Gunner RHA", but I have no actual military documentation or identification for him. Without a regimental number or a battery affiliation, and with neither of them appearing in census records after this point, we are sort of at a loss.
