Renfrewshire / death at sea?
« on: Wednesday 14 December 11 13:35 GMT (UK)  »
I was just wondering if anyone knew what would happen if someone had perhaps died at sea. where would their death be registered? i'm having trouble locating the death record of my 2x great grandfather William Robertson Cowan, a ship carpenter/shipwright, born in 1872 normally resident in Greenock with wife Jane Paton Rodger. last child was born in 1911 so i know he was alive upto that point but he is not on 1911 census with his wife but it says she is married not widowed... any help would be greatly appreciated
