There is a much easier way to find the date of a persons death in the U.K. than checking on electoral registers.
I'll be happy to look it up for you, if you give me the details.
However, I am not a paid member of this site, so although I can post messages to the forums, I don't appear to be able to send private messages to members of this site, and presumably I can't receive private messages from site members.
So, if you want my help, you'll have to email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I don't know if Vanessa is being alerted to replies to her forum posts or not, so if any paid members read this reply, perhaps they would be kind enough to send Vanessa a private message to inform her of my reply, assuming that is, that Vanessa is a paid member of the site. !
