If it's a death in the past few years, there may well have been a funeral notice in the local paper. They tend to have searchable archives of family notices on their websites going back some time.

Have you tried looking for a will? You can search up to date grants

Please scan at 300dpi minimum to help save the restorers eyesight.

There are some deaths on Find My Past for 2020.  My husband is on there and he died in 2020, so may be worth checking on there.

If I just enter 2020 with no name and no place I get 204,703 results so quite a few for that year.
