Eric James Ching 1911
« on: Monday 26 February 24 14:23 GMT (UK) »
Eric James Ching mmn Coutts was born in Bedford in 1911 to Margaret Aikman Coutts, born Dunfermline and Nehemiah Ching, a dentist, born London. 
He married Emmie Wilson in Romsey in 1935 and they appear on ER's in Edinburgh before the war and Newcastle after the war in 1946.  Emmie is living with others from 1949 onwards in Newcastle initially.  In 1962 in Chichester she is with her mother (widowed) and potential son born 1937 but he is using her Wilson maiden name.   Emmie was with her parents on 1939 register and probably son redacted.
When Eric's father dies in 1960 he is not on probate.
Emmie marries Charles Palmer in Worthing in 1973 and dies in 1980.

There is also an Eric James Ching born Richmond 1909.

Can anyone see a death for Eric James Ching anywhere?

Thank-you

Does the marriage give her status as widowed or divorced if you know?

Yes.

Some of the newspaper reports have his father's name as E or Edward Ching - took me ages to work out it was Nehemiah.

Did you get a copy of the will, just because he was not named an administrator doesn't mean he is not mentioned.
You may be able to find out his whereabouts by reading the will.

You are absolutely correct that I could apply for the will.  Because of the number of weddings that I am researching I have aimed to cut down costs through buying the minimum number of certificates.
If he is not on the will it does not mean that he is alive or dead just that he has had nothing left to him.  It might be interesting if the grandson is named or Emmie. His age and place of death was something that I try to track.  I didn't see the contents of the will stated in the paper, pity.  I will consider that.

I ordered it.

I used to look up probates all the time until they changed the system and made it impossible to search for people.

I assumed that by now things would have improved.

No - searching for Ching in another random year gives me 26 pages, first a page beginning with A and then a page beginning with B, then the correct page, then 23 more pages (of rubbish or should I check them).  No, not improved.
