Buckinghamshire / Re: Ridgway from Buckinghamshire, Madden from Roscommon
« on: Friday 16 March 18 19:47 GMT (UK)  »
Many thanks to everyone again for the help on this thread a little while back. I now think I've probably uncovered a different Ridgway/Madden connection that fits the DNA evidence nicely (not the one Ciderdrinker mentioned) and I have a (deceased) candidate for my mum's dad. Just thought I'd note that here.

Also, I've done a bit of research on the Ridgways of Waddesdon if anyone is interested - very happy to share.

London and Middlesex / Electoral roll updating, 1930s London
« on: Saturday 03 March 18 06:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I am just wondering what the process for updating the electoral roll in London in the early 1930s was? I am looking at ordering a death registration for someone in the 1st quarter of 1933 but I see the same person on the London electoral roll of 1934 on Ancestry (for the last time that I see definitely). Is it possible I still have the right death registration to order even though the person was still on the roll until the next year?

Thanks Rosie, I will give that a go.

Yes it's quite possible he was cremated and I don't really know whether his family could afford a newspaper notice. His death certificate states that he died of (a) valvular disease of heart (b) hypostatic pneumonia. There is a note afterwards "No PM" and "Certified by D Ross LRCP".

I am looking for a burial record or newspaper death/funeral notice for a James Joseph Heath who died on 9 February 1932 at Southam Street in Kensington aged 33.

I have searched Deceased Online, Findmypast, Findagrave and Ancestry for a burial record and I have searched Findmypast, The Times Digital Archive and The Telegraph Historical Archive for a family notice, but without success.

Can anyone suggest any other places to search? I'm in Australia so I only have access to online resources.

Thanks Sinann, I already have his death certificate so that's good.

Thanks Sinann, yes I can't be sure that the medal card is his, it just had the same full name and place (ie Middlesex/London). I'm going to try and order his military file from the Ministry of Defence as per Jebber's hint once I get his birth date from his birth certificate, although I think I need his service number which may complicate things if that medal card isn't his.
