Yorkshire (East Riding & York) / Scarborough obituary
« on: Monday 03 August 20 18:37 BST (UK)  »
I am researching James William Whitbread, a theatre manager and playwright who died in Scarborough on 9th June 1916.

I have a number of obits for him but I understand there was one in the Scarborough Mercury newspaper for him which I can't trace.

I wondered if anybody might have a copy or know how to obtain one.

Many thanks

I live in the UK and wonder if anybody could help with a search for an obituary please.

Thomas Frederick Anderson, secretary of the NZ Seaman's Union died in 1964 and his Obit was published in the New Zealand Herald on 24 September 1964.

I have been unable to access the Obit from the Uk and wonder if anybody would be able to let me have a transcription.

Thanks in advance for any help

One Name Studies: A to G / Georgina Fleming
« on: Friday 26 May 17 15:01 BST (UK)  »
I'm trying to find some living descendants of Georgina Fleming.

She was born in Edinburgh in 1859 and sometimes took the middle name of Helen, her parents being Charles Fleming and Amelia Jane Goldbergh. In the late 1870's her family moved to Manchester when Georgina became an actress, moving to London and touring the country on the provincial touring circuits.

She married John Preston in 1896 and they had 3 children: Margaret Preston who died at 2 months, Amelia Ann Mary Preston in 1885 and John Frederick Edwin in 1890. He died in 1914 and what happened to Amelia is a mystery.

Georgina moved back to Manchester in 1910 and back to Scotland in 1918 where she lived with one of her sisters at Ford Road Crieff until her death in 1929.  Georgina had a number of other siblings who ended up in Leicestershire and Kent as well as in Scotland.

Any information would be most welcome. Thanks.

South Africa / Frederick Rudd
« on: Friday 16 September 16 17:45 BST (UK)  »
I am looking to see if anybody can help me with finding out when Frederick Rudd died.

He was born in Grimston, Norfolk on 13 May 1874 and emigrated to Cape Town in 1898 becoming a commercial traveller making regular trips back to the UK.  There in 1904 he married Grace Susanna Brown and divorced in 1925.  He then married a Frances Mary Finlay in Durban in July 1927.

He was alive in 1939 in London, but died between then and 1950 in either Cape Town or Durban.

Any help would be much appreciated.


If anybody is visiting Southern cemetery, I would really appreciate it if they might be able to photograph a grave for me.

It is in Section E consecrated, grave number 2365.  The occupants are Amelia Fleming, Edwin James Fleming and Charles Fleming.

Many thanks in advance.
