Where did this man die.

The newspapers tell the story, but I`m hoping to find where he died and is possibly buried.
Thanks

He would be hard to track down as he was well travelled. His children were born in County Durham, Carlisle, Yorkshire and as far south as Exmouth in Devon. The 1901 census from Wednesbury says that he was a Publican and Brewer.
Perhaps he travelled to NZ to seek retribution!!! ;D

  Sorry, I should have made it clear, I was searching for Isaiah Oldbury, who was a mayor of Wednesbury and also an axle manufacturer.

Hi,

The only two mentions for an  Isaiah Oldbury that are in my resources is the one I posted  above and the other one in the 1911 Electoral Rolls for Kaiapoi, who was a farmer  and place of residence was Empire Bridge, Chaneys.

So this for elimination then?

Just found some divorce papers dated 1908, and from the way I read them Isaiah says ( through his solicitors in London ) he was in NZ at the time of the adultery and still is  .

 I can`t find him in 1901 in England with  Basil,  and can`t even find a birth registration for Basil Oldbury  either . ???

Sorry the last sighting is 1911 and as Janette says, there is no death for him.

Are you one of the tree owners on Ancestry?

Some of the newspaper articles mention about Isaiah selling all his property in NZ, and that it was not known where he now was. Perhaps he left the country once he was found out.

I think you will find the Basil OLDBURY in the school record was Basil I'ANSON, aged 5 in 1901 census, with William and Christina at the Talbot Hotel in Wednesbury,
