No not posted as David Richards, will look into this lead. Thanks

Have you also posted as David Richards, as it is his tree?

Just read your amended opening post.
Makes more sense now, as no other signs of him.

Yes Donald is his brother and the tree is my family tree. Thanks for your reply.


patchem Report 5 Jul 2013 18:22

The spelling was Derrick, is that the one you found on

Donald Cornwell, 1932, Newmarket, could be a brother, and he is in someone's tree on here.

Sent PM Derek in 2013 electoral roll, possibly a Nursing Home.

Could you tell us where you have looked for him, so we do not duplicate the searches, or advice?
Do you know when and where he was last known?


Just to add, it is Cornwell, as you have put Cornwall in your message.

If any one has any information on the were abouts of Derrick Cornwell born 1936, in Newmarket, Suffolk, England. i believe he went to live in America possibly under a different name, he disappeared in the 1950's. his father received a letter many years later to say he was in America, although the letter was posted in this country, he said he was passing through. As far as i am aware no further searches have been made. I realise it may be very difficult to find Derrick if he has changed his name. If you have any info please leave me a message.
