Leonard Percy Andrews
« on: Thursday 12 August 10 19:41 BST (UK) »
I'm having great difficulty with locating the above ancestor.

He was born in Enfield, Middx in 1910.  And that's the last definite thing I know about him.

He, apparently, died in the 1950s in Lowestoft area, where he went for the sake of his health.  I have heard he was epileptic, but whether this was the cause of death, or if indeed he died in the 50s I cannot confirm.

I have also heard that he married, and his wife was 'Molly'.  Some family members said there was a child.  Others said no children, due to his health.

Unfortunately, any family members that would have known are now long gone. 

Can anybody locate a death for a Leonard Percy Andrews which would correspond to a birth year of 1910?  I would be very grateful for any help in locating a possible death cert that I could send for.  I'm hoping a death cert may shed light on not only his health, but also his marital status.

Kind regards

KA

I'm quite speechless.  I wasn't expecting either of those results.   Looks as if he could possibly have been the healthiest of the lot.  I wonder what started the dying in the 50's story.  I smell another family mystery  ::) ::)
