John Crawford b. c1835 , death between 1881 - 1894 ?
« on: Monday 09 October 17 13:59 BST (UK) »
Hi
I am really stuck. John Crawford appears in 1881 census in Alloa aged 46. Job a slater.
In 1871 he is in Kilsyth aged 35 and a slater. In both entries born Glasgow.

His daughter died in Edinburgh in 1894. On death certificate he is stated as deceased.

I think he died between 1881-1894. I can't find him in 1891 census or in any death indexes on SP. Any search suggestions would be great.

thanks

Try https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl just in case he had strayed south of the Border and died in England or Wales.

Or https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/ in case he strayed across the Irish Sea and died in Ireland.

I am also interested in finding death of John Crawford. I tried looking at free BMD covering England but proved unsuccessful.

I found them in in 1871 at Kilsyth then 1881 in Alloa as has been said before.
In between, daughter Margaret was born in 1878, Edinburgh st Giles. She died in 1894 in Edinburgh. John is noted as "deceased" on her death cert.
Reputed wife Mary died in 1901, a vagrant and is registered in Corstorphine.

Bit what about John's death? When and where it is registered?

Have Mary and Margaret been found on the 1891 census in Scotland?

From the 1881 census, the 14 yr old John Crawford b. Glasgow in the listing is another son? Does anyone know what happened with him as it may provide clues for father?
