Hi My great uncle, Frank Osborne died aged 22 when a German U-Boat torpedoed HMS Barham on 25th November 1941.  As it is 80 years this year, I was wondering if there was a way of finding out how many of the men were from Sheffield....? Any info/advice is much appreciated.

I would start HERE which is the HMS Barham Association website. The website does have a memorial to Franks and a photograph. Worth an ask
