The Common Room / Re: Electoral registers on Ancestry
« on: Thursday 23 December 21 10:07 GMT (UK)  »
Appears Mr. Murray died in hospital as I doubt he would have been at home with what was his final illness. Sadly the certificate does not prove he is the person I am interested in.
Thanks for your help


The Common Room / Electoral registers on Ancestry

How complete are the registers on Ancestry? I have a person who died 93 Sydney Street, London in 1935 (According to death certificate) but can only find address up to 1925 on Ancestry. I need to find who lived  there as certificate says deceased was of no fixed address.

Thanks John

Did that before I posted. Found obituaries etc for all his collaborators but his passing has never been definitely found. No living descendants found as he never married and those who wrote with him have died themselves. Possibly forgotten by the reading public as he was writing in the 1930s.
My interest in finding his death is bibliographical and seems another mystery to be added to those I have come across.

English born writer, born 1901, who spent much of his life in the USA before latterly moving to France - Brittany? - where he possibly died late 1966 or 1970 according to differing sources.
Can anyone help prove any of this ?

A fellow researcher who has been researching Social Security tells me 1937 was it's first year so early errors and omissions could happen.. Could mean she died around the time the service started or sometime earlier. Also she would been under 65, the age to have a SSN, so possible the record referred to her death.

Strange about the ashes. Presume it meant no living relative could be traced ( or wanted to be).

Thanks, but I am trying to get my head round is the question - do these sort of entries refer to a certain event, as some of them have a secondary full date which could be when that person died. But not in this case where there is no indication of that. So why did they need to clarify her name in 1937 ?
The question came to me, did she marry in the late 1930s and so looking for a death under her birth name may be wasting time.

There is a  U.S., Social Security Applications and Claims Index, 1936-2007 entry for her dated 1937. Can anyone explain the reason for such entries.

Just to say the Findagrave page does refer to Julia's son Robert as born 1876. It does go on to say that many family members, including Julia's brother Robert, do disappear from available records.

The mother's bio on her Findagrave entry has a bit about Robert, saying he was born 1876 and married twice. So Edith becoming Robert can be ruled out (though I have just discovered one prolific male writer of the time who was born a woman). Interestingly although the bio gives his birth date, it is said to be unknown in a brief listing of family members at the bottom of the page.
I must admit I have a list of other writers who were New York residents and whose deaths are also not traced. So records are not complete - even the SSDI does not have several folk who died after 1960 -although assuming they died where they were living could be a mistake, not helped by the lack of BMD Records for some states etc.
