He was in London in 1910-1012 and had 3 children. He returned to Italy during WW1. Apparently he was killed in action. He was from Venice according to family info and his father Daniele owned a hotel there. He and his 2 brothers came to London to work in the hotel industry. All returned to Italy during the war and all were killed. Apart from his marriage certificate I can find no trace of him in London or elsewhere. No Cominas show up on the uk census for 1911 and there is no record of him leaving or entering the U.K. I have hit a blank wall. If anyone can help I would be much obliged.
Thanks so much Marty. My Italian is non existent. Can someone on this forum help me with translations. You kindly helped me find his war record and some other information two years ago. Do you know if his birth region is near Venice as we were told he was from there. Also I do not know if Comina is a common name in Italy or not. Any idea?

Hi, Thank you for the information. The Comina you found in the UK is definitely the right one. He was in St Giles at this time and it is his wife from other records. Please could I ask if you get this information from the Family Search website or some other source? Thank you again for sending the information and the translation. Regards, Alison
