Burial record/family notice for James Joseph Heath died Kensington 1932
« on: Monday 26 February 18 12:19 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for a burial record or newspaper death/funeral notice for a James Joseph Heath who died on 9 February 1932 at Southam Street in Kensington aged 33.

I have searched Deceased Online, Findmypast, Findagrave and Ancestry for a burial record and I have searched Findmypast, The Times Digital Archive and The Telegraph Historical Archive for a family notice, but without success.

Can anyone suggest any other places to search? I'm in Australia so I only have access to online resources.

He may also have been cremated.  :-\    What caused his death.  Could the family afford to put a notice in the newspaper.  Not many London newspapers are online.

Yes it's quite possible he was cremated and I don't really know whether his family could afford a newspaper notice. His death certificate states that he died of (a) valvular disease of heart (b) hypostatic pneumonia. There is a note afterwards "No PM" and "Certified by D Ross LRCP".

My grandfather died in Holborn c1950 and that is where he is.  He does not appear on any online site.
Holborn / Kensington are quite close
