London & Provincial Medical Directory 1855 request
« on: Friday 04 February 22 20:57 GMT (UK) »
This is a request to user essexdavid: I saw your post in the “offers” board.

Would be grateful if you could look up Robert Large Baker (my great great grandfather) who was working in Aston, Birmingham at this time.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) has a similar obit for him in the 30 May 1885 edition (page 1132).
It can be found online via a Google search.

Thank you. I had seen the RCS obit, but not the BMJ one.
