Have you looked in the British Newspaper Archive?

Where did you get the info re dates from?

Presumably there was an inquest?    If there was probate - there must have been a death cert.  Does your cousin not have a copy with the probate docs?

I don't know she lives in Canada I'm assuming she doesn't have the death certificate like I said I think she was curious to see if it was reported in the papers as it was a bit "shifty"to her ,reported missing then found dead couple of days later is usually something put in papers.

His death was certainly registered

Deaths Jun 1978   
PEARS    JOHN DUNCAN    16OC1894    WORTHING    18   2050

I'll see if there is anything in the newspapers.

Nothing on BNA or Find My Past.  May need to find a website for local papers at the time of the event.

He was 84yrs old & may have had dementia - just a theory but the death cert will give the cause of death & whether an inquest was held
