My dm has died after a really long illness, it's very unreal. She had lost touch with all her friends and family . However there is one really important cousin I would like to contact and will feel really guilty if I don't . Think I have found her using 192 website but she is ex- dir. If I get credits will it give me her address but not phone number ? I might be able to send a telegram but would prefer to speak to her. Time is running out to contact her before funeral.. Are there any other websites or ways of contacting, she does not have facebook .

Thanks mrscumberbatch. Think she probanly doesn't work as she is about 66, haven't seen this website. Could check it out for contact details her daughter , who has not answered a facebook message.

I take it you've done a directory search for her daughter?

If you can see her FB, does she have another half? I'd message them too if it lets you. Just explain that it's quite urgent and you're not sure that she had seen the message that you sent to her.

Sorry to hear about your DM btw. Glad she isn't suffering any more x

We were ex-directory and one day received a bunch of flowers, with a message from a cousin we'd kinda lost touch with, there was a phone number and 'please call urgently' - turned out her dad, my mum's cousin, had died, and this was the quickest way they could think of to get in touch, with address but no phone number. It worked, my mum was able to attend her cousin's funeral, two days later. Thank you Interflora!
