Have PM'd Sheila with a possible obituary notice :-(


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 9 Jan 2013 15:54

True, Sheila - didn't think of that. Hope you can find and answer, one way or the other.

Do you (or one of the relatives) know the name of a friend of his? Or how about the local Funeral Homes?

Let's hope that in the words of Mark Twain
"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated "

If the address is the same as Choccy can give you, try googling it - an estate agent may be advertising the property.


Reggie Report 9 Jan 2013 15:31

You could try this.................


Choccy Report 9 Jan 2013 15:17

Have sent you a PM.


sheila7 Report 9 Jan 2013 15:12

Thanks Det i will try that

Sorry - don't have credits. You can make a free search on, but bear in mind that many people don't have their names on the public register

If he owned the last address you have, you can check it against the 'sold' prices on if that helps?
