Note that the loss of WW1 records was due to a German bomb in WW2, not British carelessness.

Lorraine,

Most British WW1 soldiers had medals and should have medal cards. Search using the form at https://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/help-with-your-research/research-guides/british-army-medal-index-cards-1914-1920/  .   It does not matter if you don't know his service number - the search works without this information.  If the search dos not provide any results for you then that means he did not serve under that name (or the spellling you are using) or was not awarded any medals.  Try just putting in only his surname, or perhaps possible spelling variants of the just the surname.
Less than 50% of the service and pension files survived.  You need to search on Ancestry.com for these.

Service Numbers are known usually only by that person, I doubt if any family member would know it.  I think your best bet is to find any item such as a mess tin upon which that number may have been stamped.   In the British Army campaign medals (but not WW1) are given with the recipient's name and number.  Other places which might have it are any ex-service organisation of which he was a member or the regimental association.  If he died on Active Service then AJEX, the British Jewish Ex-service person's organisation may have it from their book of Jews who died in the services in WW1.  Other than that, when we can all travel freely, as part of a holiday in the UK you could visit the National Archive at Kew (in London) and do your own manual search; I have done that to find information about dead relatives and that only requires the name.

The attached death notice published in the Jewish Chronicle newspaper (UK), Page 2 on 1 4 April 1916, might relate to the Hyman SACKS you are seeking?

Also, further to the useful advice given by Michael Tobias, unless you need an official death certificate on paper, you should order the digital PDF version which is both quicker and cheaper, and has the same image of the death entry in the GRO register that you would find on the paper certificate (so the PDF perfectly OK for genealogy research but not useful as a legal document).

Does anyone know how I can get a copy of the complete death record for Hyman Sacks from Manchester, England? According to the England & Wales Civil Registration Death Index, Hyman was born in 1851 and died between April and June 1916. His record is in Vol.8D, page 253. 
Thanks in advance for your assistance,
