Buy the death cert for info - the informant may have been a relative

Have you tried searching for info yourself?

The marriage to Amy appears to be correct as the will left his effects to Amy Brookes

How did you manage to view the actual Will, Hamster?

Perhaps I worded my reply wrong Reggie.

I looked at the 'England & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations), 1858-1966 Record for Arthur Cyril Brookes' on Ancestry and transcribed what I saw.

New Thread:

Can anyone help with ARTHUR CYRIL BROOKES? I have his birth, marriage and death dates but someone must know of him??

He died in Hillcrest hospital Leicester but is there any way I can find out when he went in there?? The informant on the death cert' is a worker at the hospital.


Have advised Paul better to continue on here.

paul Report 27 Aug 2012 10:09

Thanks for doing that for me MarieCeleste I wasnt aware I could only do one post per family name, sorry.

Arthur Brookes does not appear to be in any family trees (I have already looked).

I have all his main dates however its as if no-one knew him.
