Joseph Billingsley Death in Jamaica, 1942.
« on: Saturday 25 November 17 14:16 GMT (UK) »
Could any Root Chatter have any advice on where I can obtain information in Jamaica.
I am looking for information on a Joseph Billingsley, but spelled wrongly Billingslea, his occupation was a Mechanic.
He died on 26th April 1942 in Jamaica.
His address was  21/4 Belmont Road. Kingston.
Would Love to find his burial place, death certificate and obtain any newspaper articles as to why he was there.

Here's hoping some kind person can point me in the right direction.

Regards, Billo.

There is a Joseph Billingslea on the passenger list of the Tilapa in July 1936 bound from Liverpool To Kingston, a mechanic aged 32, address in Liverpool. Is that him?

Hello ShaunJ,

Thank you for replying, yes I have that entry and that is the Joseph that died in 1942.

Just don't know which way to go for his burial in Jamaica.

Thanks again for the reply.

Hello ShaunJ,

Thanks for the link. Really delighted with that.

Now need to find out why Joseph was there, and where he is buried in Jamiaca.

Regards,

Billo.
