You need to know the man's last address to start looking for his burial/cremation

You have told us where he was born........but not where he died.

Hello Carol Ann
There are 3 different trees on Ancestry with Percy in
one has the death a October 1956 which might help narrow down
you search at the cemetery.

Hello Carol Anne and welcome to the Community Boards.

If you check the trees on this site (click on Search above and then on all trees), you will see that several members on this site quite possibly have Percy in their trees. You can contact the tree owners to see if they have any more information for you.
