That might be the case Jan. Wait and see. Keep us informed.

Well, still no joy. However I have found out recently (thanks to Shirley, Andrew and InspectorGreenPen) that you can order recent death certs without the date of death/registration! DOH. Never realised that even after all this time.

There is a brother (who did marry, again no offspring as far as I can see) who died in 1995, so have sent for the death cert.

Fingers crossed again!

fingers crossed for you:)

Hi Jan

I didn't know that either, but on Heir Hunters this week they got a recent death cert by going to the local office. Can you do it online?



brummiejan Report 1 Mar 2011 06:14

Yes you can it seems! Check out this thread:

brummiejan Report 3 Mar 2011 09:51

Not arrived yet but hopefully any day now! Have in the meantime discovered her husband's death 1999, so if this cert doesn't help will send for that one.
Thanks for the interest Lynn!

I keep looking in too. Was hoping you might have heard something by now......oh dear, the suspense!!!



Madmeg Report 5 Mar 2011 02:15


I've contacted at least 6 very elderly rellies myself "out of the blue" and all have replied, delighted to have been remembered. One very very eldery relative did get her daughter to reply, so she's also been welcomed into the family again.

Good Luck

0.- just a peek to see.... I was also hoping you would have heard by now, but some people take a little longer to digest news, so still got my fingers crossed for you.



Quinsgran Report 5 Mar 2011 09:19
