Hi can anyone poss help me with a death search from the last 2 to 3 years or offer advice?

Muriel black (nee walker) last know living in leeds

Muriel is a family member who i made contact with some yrs ago but contact stopped and her phone number is no longer in use. As she isnt in contact with any other family or friends i have no way of knowing if something has happened :(

Thanks in advance

Do you have any knowledge of her neighbours, and was she in private accommodation? How close do you live?
Do you know her date of birth, and have you considered searching at any of these places:

Thankyou thats v helpful...really wasnt sure where to start. I dont know her neighbours but i will write to both sides and see what happens. Im too far away to go to her house and cant travel there as much as i really want to right now. She was born abt 1930

Thanks for your help :)

The only Muriel Black listed in Leeds on the electoral roll has been at the same address since the 1980s it says still there in 2012 but there looks to be a sale in that's a bit odd....that was from people tracer Find my past only says 2002-03
