Death Dates Needed: Adamson, Harvey, Humphreys
« on: Tuesday 20 March 18 13:14 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to find the death dates for the following siblings who once lived in Norfolk: Maude E (Humphreys) Harvey born 1915, Rosalie M (Humphreys) Adamson born 1919, David L Humphreys born 1926.

Maude & Rosalie both married in Depwade. Rosalie's husband Benjamin died in 1979 Norwich. But I can't find anything on Rosalie. Can't find either sister after their marriages in the late 1930s. I suspect they both lived in Norfolk. David I can't find at all. Would appreciate any help with this.

Could you please give the married surnames for the girls and the years that they married

Sorry, just noticed that possibly you have mentioned their married surname.   :-\

I have removed their names as they could still be living

It is possible these people are still living or have recently died.  Have you tried searching online obituaries.  Death registration indexes are not available online after 2007.

You could also try searching the probate index

Rosie, Maude married Nelson Harvey in 1938, Depwade. So her married name is/was Harvey. Rosalie married Benjamin Adamson in 1939, Depwade, so her married name is/was Adamson. I've considered the possibility that they're still alive, but Maude would be 104, Rosalie 98 & David 91. They'd all be very old & pushing 100. How can I find them if they're alive?

Thanks Emeltom. That might very well be him. His birth date was Dec 1926, though Dec could've been a registration month. I'll keep David Lewis in mind. Norwich seems to one up alo t in the family. So that could be him.

Sorry, the entry for Maude should have read 58, Frenze Road.
