Hi copperbeach5,

Yes I did already try this but thanks for your help.

Yes the details were Robert John Marshall and who died on the 1 February 1961.  He lived in Portland Road, Nottingham.  Robert John originally came from Gortilea, Claudy, Co Derry Northern Ireland.
I would love to find a photo of him as I never knew him but think this is impossible.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi Kieran,

Next time I visit the Angel Row library in Nottingham I will have a look for you? Or are you saying that the staff looked and could find nothing?

I have to say - I feel cheated [reading this thread] - that you have not posted the photos on here [or am I just sad and morbid? - actually I feel a bit morbid today, might visit the graves forum next! lol]

LH35 helped me to find the grave of one of my ancestors - from the map she has - lovely lady!!!

Please let me know if you would like me to look for notice in the papers.

Hi Elaine,

Thanks for your reply.  I would be more than grateful if you could have a look for me when you are next at Angel Row library.  I would love to find a photo of him as I never knew him but think this will not happen unless someone lived next door to him would have any. 

Yes LH35 is a wonderful lady who has helped me alot.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi Kieran,

Not sure when this will be - hopefully within the next four weeks - but I will look for you, I promise.

Hi Kieran,

What about contacting the Nottingham Evening post, and offer to write a little article.... they might be up for that, and it may reach someone who could tell you more, or maybe even produce your much needed picture?

I always think for the sake of an email, or stamp it's worth a try!

Best wishes,

I have to agree , writing a letter   to  the letter page  is something that might  bring forth  more info ..
I have seen that done before, when friends have lost contact .

Give it a go Kieran you have nothing to lose . :)
