Just ordered a inventory of personal estate.
 Shanghai is a puzzle. Is this a place in Forfar?

Looks good, Kay.

I can’t see a death recorded for him on SP, 1913.

Oh crumbs, just looked at the date. 
My John was 14th of August 1913.  Think this one was 14th March 1913.
Gees I could kick myself, paid out for three documents yesterday, one not much use and now this one.
Sorry people, need to read more carefully. :-[

Worth checking the newspapers for a death announcement.

Thanks.  Feel stupid. 
However many John Milnes to chose from with S.P.

Would anyone be able to check a death notice for me.  Date is 14 Aug 1913 Coupar Angus. 

Hopefully it may state his son John and daughter Mary Ann MacCullum.

There is a death of John Milne, aged 82, in Coupar Angus in 1913. This John Milne would have been born in 1830/1831. Do you have his death certificate?
