After finding my 2x Great-Uncle Percival Richardson’s marriage to Edith Waby in 1922, the next step was to find a death certificate for him.
I used FreeBMD again, restricting the results to between 1930 and 1975, which fortunately gave only one possible match, in 1965.
When the certificate arrived, it showed that Percival and Edith were living at 72 Belton Road, Hyson Green, Nottingham and that Percival was a retired joiner.
Percival had died in the City Hospital, Nottingham of a number of complaints:
1a Pulmonary oedema
b Congest. left ventricular failure
c Coronary thrombosis
d Uraemia from prostate hypertrophy
I’m not in any rush to Google them to find out the gory details!
I’ve already searched FreeBMD for any possible children without any success, so it’s probable that they didn’t have any.
I may try a search of the local newspapers to see if there are any announcements which would help round out the picture of this family.
