Posting here in case anyone has any advice or tips.
I'm trying to find out the place and date of the death of a friends father.
He was born in 1919 and went to Liverpool in the 1950's.
The last contact was with his family was in 1982 when he would have been 63.
Anyway the years slipped by and he was never heard from again. We presume he may have died in 1982.
I have contacted UK Pensions office etc and just cant get any information from them due to Confidentiality etc. I've requested from them, person or Dept to whom I should write, but haven't heard anything back.
I'm currently trying to locate Care Homes and RC Churches close to where here lived to see if they have any records, in care or burial.
We tried a search with the Salavation Army but that drew a blank. It may well have been that he used a different name and DOB for Social Welfare/Pensions etc.
The Police were very helpful but their records dont go back to 1982 and he would have had to have broken the law to be known to them. So a blank there also.
His son just wants to put his mind at rest to know how, when and where he died and to erect a headstone, if there is a burial place.
Any experiences or suggestions where to look?
