Thank you Arthurk. I was telling my wife of your great work and it prompted her to remember a little more information!

Albert apparently died at Easter time in 1966, recollected as being at the same time as our own loss. I find that the puts it at around 8 - 11th April.

My wife is sure that at some point he did enter a Monastic Order, believing him having to relinquish 'all worldly goods', which were already pitifully few. Her Grandmother, Albert's Mother and their local priest were apparently the only mourners at his funeral, which seemingly was a rather 'sparse' ceremony. But no idea where it took place!

I'll look into the  Church Times archive suggested and also the national Library of Wales link.

Thank you once again for all the amazing help.

The only death registration that appears to fit with the date and age is in the Lower Agbrigg district in Yorkshire, Jun qtr 1966. This made me wonder whether he might have been connected with the Community of the Resurrection (an Anglican monastic order), whose mother church is in Mirfield. Mirfield isn't actually in that district, but it's close.

Thanks again Arthurk for another lead to follow up.
This started for me as something of a 'tidying up loose ends exercise but, as is often the case, has turned into quite an interesting hunt!

Thank you all for your kind efforts in 'finding' Albert.
We now know and thank you Arthurk for your great assistance that led to this, that he did indeed end his days as a member of the Mirfield community, which he had joined in 1964. Also, that he had, as suspected, died in that area during Easter week of 1966, aged just 47.
The result means a lot, especially to my wife and, for that, thank you again.

Not sure how this will fit in! I have a photo of an Albert Roberts we are looking for. He was born around 1918-1924 and died around 1963 - 66. He was believed to have links to Wales. I'd really like to share the photo we have to see if this is the same Albert. Our Albert died of a heart attack also.

This is the Albert we are looking for. Is the face the same as yours?

Hi Kellygr7. Thanks for the response but, unfortunately, this isn't a picture of 'our' Albert.
