Death Notice Lookup - British Newspaper Archives

Recommended Posts

Hello ,

 

I am in need of some assistance from a member with access to the British Newspaper Archives. Specifically, I am seeking reprints of 2 death notices for WILLIAM ALLEN (died 21 July 1886 in California) published in UK newspapers:

 

* Morning Post, London, Tuesday, 27 July 1886. Article, page 1.

* Bath Chronicle & Weekly Gazette, Thursday, 29 July 1886, page 5, Family Notices.

 

Please respond to me at <email address removed>

 

Thanks for helping me on this. It is much appreciated!

Sincerely,

Paul

Hi Le200,

Thanks for the Drop Boxes. Unfortunately, you sent the wrong date of the Morning Post. It is 27 July 1886, not 1880.

 

I hope you won't mind sending the correct copy.

 

Regards,

Paul

Hello everyone,

It's been a long time. I have finished writing my book about an old Prescot family  - actually working on the footnotes and have hit a snag. I saw somewhere that Joseph Allen, 1787-1845, was a "manufacturer." He died in Gateacre, Little Woolton. For the life of me, I cannot retrieve the source.

Will someone please help?

Thank you,

Paul Rollins
