Hi.
Looking for the death record of George Henry Johns b. 1805 Truro Cornwall.
George moved to Alderney C I in the 1840s with his family. The 1851 shows him living in Crabby Village Alderney. However by 1861 his wife Agnes is a widow.
Can sks help.? Thanks Dud.

Alderney civil records are quite sketchy with many gaps, especially so with deaths.
Try contacting the Priaulx Library in Guernsey for more accurate information.

I see that George was a Labourer on the 1851 and I would guess that he was working on the nearby breakwater that was under construction at that time.
