Hi everyone,

I have a Susan HENDRY (nee COYLE b.1862) who married William Lawrence HENDRY in 1896  Dundee, Scotland.

Susan's parents were: Patrick COYLE & Catherine YOUNG m.1862 Dundee

I have all the BDM's except Susan's death certificate. I have no idea WHERE Susan died.

Susan was alive for the 1901 Scotland Census and was deceased by 1908, when her husband married again.

On his marriage certificate he states his wife is 'deceased', though no date when she died. :p

After scouring Scotlands People (under every variation I could think of :), I paid the BDM Registry to search for Susan's death between 1901 & 1908.  They couldn't find Susan's death either.

In 1901 Susan was living at Brook St Erskine Cottages, Monifieth and in 1908 it appears William is living in Well St Monifieth in 1908.

I have searched what graveyards are available online and no luck.

I have also search Germany, New Zealand, UK and Australia, in case Susan was visiting family.

Any suggestions would be welcomed. :)

Kind regards,
Silkweb.

I've got one like that. William McKenzie was born, lived, married, produced 11 children and was buried, all in Montrose. The burial record says he died on 7 December 1909 but I, and the staff in the Scotland's People Centre, have failed to find a death certificate.

PS How do you search Germany, as a matter of curiosity?

If this is your correct Susan Hendry in the 1901 Scotland census it states her occupation is "Wife of Jute Massions Tenter of Ovsent India."  ???
Perhaps a poor transcription of something I would imagine.
As I do not see William with her in 1901, perhaps he is overseas in India and she joined him there at some point and died in India?  ::)
Might be worth investigating if you haven't checked there yet.

Deb,

Yes that's Susan in the 1901.  As far as I know they didn't go to India.

I suppose I'd better check India, just in case.  Wouldn't think their record keeping would be very good. :p

I did find a possible entry for William in Dundee for 1901.

Little Magdalena ended up back in Germany and Susan & William Hendry's natural,  son, David, stayed with his father in Angus.

Forfarian - I had hired a German Researcher to work on Susan's 1st husband, so the Researcher searched for her death and couldn't find it either.

Sherrie.
