Hi Larkspur,
thanks again for the reply and the details you listed, i have decided to email the Nottingham Archives with all the details of my Grandad to see if initially there are any records that will be open to me so all i can do is await a reply.
I shall keep all informed in due course and let you know how i get on,its just sad sometimes to find a close relative ending there days like this.

Have taken these views to go alongside the web link to show how the building has been used for housing. The admin block is now a restaurant and the chapel a nutition centre

Hi Elaine,
The photos are absolutely stunning....i wonder what the people think sometimes when they realise they are living in an old Mental asylum....
I have sent a application off to the Nottingham archives, now just waiting to see what comes back...All i know from a reply to my email i sent..They do not hold any death records for the year i am looking at..
Once again...a million thankyous for your time.
