SOLVED: Frank Jeffrey TRIGG, when did he die?
« on: Friday 10 December 21 12:16 GMT (UK) »
Firstly, apologies for putting this here, I wasn't sure of the etiquette when it could be either England or Wales.

Frank Jeffrey Trigg was born 23 Dec 1923 in Newent, Gloucestershire. He grew up just over the border in Llantarnam, Monmouthshire.

Family lore says he died when either he, or his elder brother Harold Maurice (b 1915) was 14. It is unclear from the sentence structure which one was 14! He died of TB. ("oh yes, Maurice had a brother who died of TB when he was 14")

I have ordered a death certificate for the only death I can find, which is Jan 1929 in Bournemouth. This would make Frank around 4 and Harold around 14 which could fit, and although the family have no connection to Bournemouth we thought it possible there was a TB sanatorium there (There were many on the south coast due to the favourable air).

All well and good we think.................................

Except that I now find Frank is listed on the 1939 census as living at home in Llantanam and is described as incapacitated, which would fit with being ill with TB but completely throws out the 1929 death.

I cannot find another death anywhere that could be him, after 1939.

Can anyone help?

TIA, Tracey

Transcribed - mistakenly - as Grigg on Ancestry.

…and also on FreeBMD. But the error seems to be with the original GRO typed index, which does indeed list this death as Grigg among the G entries. Now corrected by the GRO in their reindexing exercise for the online site.

Thanks Everybody

it seems so simple when you all do it. I have spent hours looking, in all the name combinations I could think of.

I really need to get better at this  :)
