Completed Date of Death- Francis Russell PARKINSON
« on: Friday 27 November 09 20:37 GMT (UK) »
Having searched Ancestory/Free BMD I cannot find the date or place of death for this man, he was living in Minehead (Kelly's 1927) but was not listed in the 1931 directory, he was a retired Lt Col and former CO of the Welsh Regiment, but I'm would very much like to find his date of death, his twin brother, they were born in 1856 in Bath, died in 1940, can anybody help please??

Regards Bowman

My great Aunt Freda Mossop  married  a Frank Russell Parkinson  of the Welsh regiment and she lived on the Isle of Wight, so it sounds like this is the same person.  Have you any information on his ancestry?
