John A Holdcroft Obituary 2009
« on: Saturday 23 March 19 12:23 GMT (UK) »
Hi All,
 Just wondering if anyone  has access to the Nottingham Evening Post for 2nd December 2009 please. I'm looking for the obituary for John A Holdcroft who died 18 November 2009 and whose obituary was published on 2nd December. It appears to be too recent to be in the British Newspapers in FindMyPast.

Kind regards,

Yes,  the link worked and it was the right one. Sadly no mention of his wife though.

Do you want help as regards the wife?  As no mention, did they divorce?  Contact the children?

Probably still alive (in her 70's) so limited help on here.

I am trying to prove that John Abraham Holdcroft and John Abraham Isaac are one and the same person. Birth and death dates seem to match. I have found the marriage for John A Holdcroft to Christina Mary Fairgreve Mackay 1979 in Birmingham. The  son Jonathan mentioned in the obit has a small tree on Ancestry and My Heritage where he states his father is John Isaac and mother is Christine Fairgreve Mackay, but he uses the surname Holdcroft. I tried to contact him but he has no wish to communicate about the matter.
Regards,
