Wilfred Herbert Norris??? Where to now??
« on: Tuesday 10 December 13 08:28 GMT (UK) »
hello..
Wilfred herbert norris born 18 october 1916 at 68 Bedford road Finchley london england.
was the second son of Herbert Arthur Norris and Elizabeth Mirabel Turner. Wilfred Died 29 March 1993 at Colchester General Hospital, Essex England. The address on the certificate is 9 queens court kings avenue, holland on sea essex. his occupation is retired Television Producer.

between 1955-1960 i found him at his father's address of 68 Bedford road Finchley London on the electoral rolls.

I need to know where else I can search for him 'online' as I live in Australia.. he is my dad's late uncle and my dad would like to know more about him.

Looks like he went to his Dads address after his Dads death, and that he wasnt a TV producer then.

i have not found a marriage.
on the London electoral rolls up to 1960 he is the only occupant listed.
his death certificate states that he was a retired Television Producer. I have the will of his late father as well.

Not sure there is anything else you are likely to find! Unless he did anything very spectacular in life that there is some sort of record of.

What sort of thing were you hoping to find?

Dad wants to know when he moved from London to Essex, as dad himself lived in essex for a while. did he own where he was living? we have tried to contact the newspaper but they dont do online searches and were not very helpful in regards to seeing if a obtiuary was listed??

Did he leave a Will? 
Too recent for the part of the index that is online, but you can still apply for a search for one
