Looking for a death record
« on: Thursday 23 June 22 09:47 BST (UK) »
I would like to know why I have been unable to find any death record for Charles Percy Liversidge. last heard of in Liverpool in 1903/04, single and employed by the Lancs & Yorks Assurance Society, later part of Aviva.  Family folklore stated fairly categorically that he had committed suicide.

You don't give any birthyear or birthplace for him - freebmd shows 1873 Holywell. 

This should have been raised as a new post as although there is a missing cert involved - it is not connected to the main query about the 2009 death and detracts from that topic

That may be a good idea, but I don't expect many responses without a change of title  :)

As your chap was last seen in Liverpool area, might it be better to ask for it to be moved to Lancashire board?

Well, yes, I started by posting there 6 or more years ago, without much success.  I thought maybe another stab in a different place might provoke one of our keen searchers to come up with something  :D
