Is it possible for someone to do a lookup on the London ER (circa 1950) for 45 Rossendale House, Upper Clapton, London E5 (most likely Rossendale House is on Rossendale Road according to Google) please?

I have received a death cert today (death in October 1950) but the Registrar wins the prize for small wiggly writing - and am having trouble confirming informant - looks like initials F A.

Thank you

The roll is only searched by name I,m afraid

Hi Chris

Thanks will take a look

Janet

Edit: Could well be him, died 28/10, registered 31/10 so I suppose it is possible he was buried 4/11 (quick)
