Looking for the Grand Nephew of Louisa Pollard
« on: Sunday 31 January 16 16:49 GMT (UK) »
I have her death certificate and her Grand Nephew, was the informant, some 6 months after her death,  on the 26 Jan 1987, gave his address as 64 Roselawn Rd Castleknock, D.15 
Louisa's husband had died back in 1970.

(One of my grandfather's brothers, Francis aka 'Frank' Pollard was married to Louisa.  I have their Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates.)

As he could still be alive - you can't mention his name here

However - that causes a problem as we have no idea who we are looking for and couldn't post details anyway ;D

Have you made any enquiries to see if he is still at the address given in 1987 or if the present occupants can give any info?

Have you tried local telephone directories

No I didn't know she had left a Will.  I've done a search on the website but it doesn't come up with anything.  Perhaps I'm not searching correctly?

Yes that's the correct date. Her death certificates gives her address 14 Galtymore Park Dublin 12.

I will keep trying later on to find it on the National Archives website.   :)
