The only Edwin Pritchard who is registered Dec Q, 1938 is  Medway, 2a, page 1050. He was 74 which makes him b. 1854.

This was a full GRO index search.

Is there any reason that he might have gone to Kent and the person who registered the death added 10 years?

Have you tried the local Register Office - he might have been missed off the national one. It's not uncommon.

Many thanks for your reply.I have tried the local registery but no luck.I do know he was a railway guard so it is possible he was in Kent but the 10years discrepancy in the birth year makes me wonder if it is him.   As its the only one shown I will send for the death cert.and see if its the Edwin I want.
Thanks again

Hello, Realise you may have found the information you were looking for by now, but just in case you were still wondering, Edwin Pritchard died in Rochester, Kent while on holiday with his wife. He was buried in Kent but his wife (my Great Grandmother) couldn’t settle and had his body exhumed and reburied near their home in Abergavenny. Hope this helps. Always found it a very touching story. She must have loved him very much.

Welcome, Appleby  :)

That explains so much. The death ref was correct after all. I hope pritchard sees your post.

Thanks for the information.
I was able, after a considerable time, to get Edwin's death certificate and found out he had died at 19 Kings Avenue on the 7th Dec.1938.I wasn't aware,however, that he was exhumed before being buried at Llantillio Pertholy Church as I am unable to find a record although his name is on the headstone with others of his family {William,Sarah,Edwin,Mary Hanah and their daughter Hilda.It was also of interest that he married Mary at St Michaels Church Abergavenny which is a Roman Catholic church even though her background suggests she was a Baptist.

Hugh, Thanks for your reply. I am going to see if I can find out more information and will get back to you. My Grandmother Dora was Reg’s sister. I believe you are in contact with my mother, Elizabeth. Best wishes, Emma
