I have been struggling for 6 months to get my grandfathers unabridged death certificate.
Home affairs in South Africa are "searching" continually, even though I call and escalate the request almost every week.

I am looking for someone who searches the archives, whom I can pay to do this for me.
I have search using the online search function but found nothing.

I have my grandfathers name and ID number.
I also know where he died, the hospital, and the funeral service company (all of which don't keep records)

He died in Pinetown, Durban, South Africa in 1980.

If anyone is able to help me, please let me know.
