Looking for death cert of Ali Mohamed
« on: Monday 19 September 11 17:44 BST (UK) »
Hi

Sorry to ask for help again but this forum has been great at solving some of my family tree mysteries.

Anyway I am searching in vain for the death certificate of my grandfather Ali Mohamed. He married Mary Hillock in 1943 in Dunfermline. Ali and Mary gave birth to my mother Alma in 1945. I ordered the marriage extract from SP. It listed his age at the time of the marriage as 39. That means he was born in 1904 I guess. My mother used to visit his grave I think (or at least that is what she told me) at Cowdenbeath cemetery. I have recently tried to find his grave but had no success. I tried searching SP for a death for Ali Mohamed born in 1904. The only result I got was for one in Glasgow in 1979. I finally got the cert today only to see that it was a totally different Ali Mohamed as he has different parents listed to the ones on the marriage cert. My mother was born with the surname "Mohammed" so I did try alternative spellings but still no joy. Are there any deaths which for some reason would not be indexed on SP?

I should add that I have no idea when he died. I was born in 1981 and cannot remember him so I would assume before then.  The people who would know are my mother and grandmother and they are sadly deceased.

Thanks


Robert

Actually too young to be my grandfather but it is Uncle Ronnie. I do remember him.

Not many of an age to be married in 1943 if he died in Fife

The age is wrong for this one but it may have been transcribed wrongly

Yeah I did notice that one before. I could perhaps take a chance on it. The name seems unfamiliar too.

Ali Mohamed d 1948, Glasgow City. b 1904 +/- 1 year.
Mary Mohamed, nee Hillock, d 2007, Fife.
Allan Mohamed, d 1997, Fife, I do not know if this is the same family.

Thanks Malky

Mary was my grandmother. She did die in 2007.

I am pretty sure my grandfather did not die in 1997. I would remember it for sure.

The first one might be worth looking at though.

Didn't find one in Glasgow City but found this:
1   1948   MOHAMED   ALI           M   46   DUNBARNEY AND DRON   /PERTH   347/00 0023


IT'S THE ONE!

Cannot believe I paid £12 and waited in anticipation for the cert only to find the real one was viewable all the time on SP.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. Top man Malky!!
