Michael Alan Robinson

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Connie Report 22 Nov 2019 20:04

Michael Alan Robinson was born in 1939 in Sunbury on Thames and married his 3rd wife Christine Margaret Anderson nee Shaw in 1994 in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. According to the latest electoral roll I can find them still living in Huntingdon 2009 but nothing after. I’ve looked to see if anyone has them in their tree but nothing. They seem to have vanished.
I wonder if someone could look on Ancestry to see if they appear in any tree listed there.
I’ve not posted anything before on this part of the site so,I’m not sure I’m doing it correctly.
Many thanks

Maybe they opted out of the public roll

The house in Huntingdon was last sold in 1997 - so they may still be there (unless they were only renting it).
Have you tried writing to the 2009 address?


Connie Report 22 Nov 2019 21:33

Thank you for your replies. They have only lived in rented property and must have opted out of public roll.
Quite possible that the death is for Michael I’ll see if I can find out more.

It has been confirmed that this is Michael. I’ve been trying to look for an obituary in the local paper but at the moment can’t find one.

There simply may not be one


Connie Report 22 Nov 2019 22:37

I think you are right ErikaH

A copy of the death cert would tell you his address in 2016, if you hope to try to find Christine.

Also, there are three M Robinsons listed in Ely in the BT phonebook - two of them with postcode CB6, as stated in the death record.
One might perhaps be the right household, if Christine hasn't updated the entry.

Older info, but maybe worth following up is here:

There's an M A Robinson, and a Michael Robinson listed there, both with postcode CB6 - though the small print at the bottom does say "Data ranges from 1 - 10 years old."
Neither of those Robinsons are in the current BT phonebook - at least not at the same addresses.

Thank you for that. I will look into it.
