Malcolm David Williams

MartinHill Report 9 Oct 2019 17:40

Trying to locate Malcolm David Williams, born 1939, Birkenhead. On the UK electorial register it has him at 11 Mona Street, Birkenhead in 2016. This property is in the hands of a rental company but I cant find a death/marraige certificate for him so hes possibly in a home.

Any ideas how to proceed. Many thanks

Well few 2016 onwards deaths are online. It doesn’t mean he may not have passed

He was at that address for many years so may have passed the tenancy back

If you know the name of the leasing company why not ask them if they have a new address for him or any other Info

But with privacy laws they may not want to give out any info

Don’t know how anyone can find what you haven’t other than that address

Looks like the house sold in November 2016. Definitely try contacting neighbours.

I went to the property and spoke to a neighbour and I also spoke to social services. Confirmed he is in a home and he has 2 daughters. I requested to social services that they pass on my details but not heard anything since. Oh well I tried

Can you tell me how I can contact a member on here, I think she has left the site or she is ill. She posted me some information and now shes disappeared. Thanks

Have you looked for the daughters

If you check freebmd you will find 2 potential daughters reg Birkenhead, 1 in 1975 the other in 1981. Both have 2 christian names so maybe easy to track down?

If they are the right children, I think the younger daughter may have died in 2009?

Re the member who sent you information - did she post it on a thread, or send it by private message?

Have you PM'd a reply, but it hasn't been opened? Sometimes it can take people ages to reply, perhaps because the message has gone into their junk mail and they haven't noticed it, or perhaps because they think it's some sort of scam email, or else maybe they aren't well and haven't been looking at their emails - could be lots of reasons.

Apart from maybe sending another message, there's nothing you can do except wait patiently and keep hoping for a reply.

Several people with the names on Facebook. Can the neighbours give you any more details about the daughters, or the name of the Home.


MartinHill Report 20 Oct 2019 10:15

No the neighbour had no further information about the daughters other than they were still local and in their 40's. :-(
