« on: Thursday 06 December 18 18:51 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone have further information on the death of Eccles Lennox who died jan-Mar 1906 in Clun. His wife was Elizabeth Lennox nee McMurdy who died in 1923.
Their son Eclas died in 1949 in Clun.
Thanks for any help.

I have further evidence that Eccles Lennox died in Jan 1906 in Clun. Does this help anyone to find his obit or a death record giving his parents' names. I am particularly wanting his mother's name.
thanks for any help

Tonight, I found the index entry for the death of Eccles Lennox in 1906 in Clun on free BMD. I thought you would be able to see the death record itself but I can't seem to do so. Should I be able to see the death record to see his parents' names. Should be James Lennox and possibly Miss Morrow, first name not given on Eccles' believed brother James's death record in Scotland.
Thanks for any help

You won’t get any more info than that on the index. You will need to purchase the death certificate but that won’t give his parents names anyway (unless one of them registered the death).

The only way to find his mother would be his birth certificate, or a baptism.

Do you have him on a census anywhere?

Edited - as he was born around 1834 in Ireland there won’t, of course, be a birth certificate 🙄

Yeah, I was counting on a death certificate as there is no baptism online. If I ever get to Ireland, maybe there is a baptism on some reel of film at Proni.
I have found him on censuses but only after marriage so they don't help with his parents' names.But thank you for letting me know that his parents won't be on the death certificate.

Wow, thank you Aghadowey.  That would be Eccles’ son Eccles who died in 1949.  Thanks for the link.
