Brabazon & Clarissa Newcomen, Cape Town
« on: Thursday 26 July 18 14:23 BST (UK) »
Major (George) Brabazon Newcomen died in the Palace Hotel, Kenilworth, on 12 Apr. 1947.
His wife Clarissa née Molteno had died just three weeks earlier, probably also in Kenilworth.

Somebody told me they died in tragic circumstances, but didn't enlarge on that.
Does anyone know anything about it?  Was there perhaps a newspaper report?

Many thanks, jorose.

I would never have found that without your help.
