Just searched on BT and no record of the address but they may have been ex-directory anyway.

Any Births/Deaths/Marriages sites don't seem to be very up to date.

It is so important that I find this out and I amstuck. Can anyone please help?

Local paper - obituaries? Local undertakers? Local hospitals?

Thanks. Had googled the name and got nothing. Will try again.

I can't just ring the local hospital and ask if someone has died recently.

themoon66 Thu 27-Sep-07 11:09:55

Where do you live?

harleyd Thu 27-Sep-07 11:10:24

Ring the hospital?

NAB3 Thu 27-Sep-07 11:11:12

I live in Kent but the person in question was/is in Bradford.

harleyd Thu 27-Sep-07 11:11:47

ring the local registrar and ask if a death has been registered.

NAB3 Thu 27-Sep-07 11:13:08

Too long to go in to now but will ring the hospital now.

Would the local police in Bradford be able to tell you that sort of info?

Have you tried ringing the local Births & Deaths office in Bradford, to see if their death has been registered, rather than looking online?

Thanks all.

Phoned hospital and she was there.

Have to ring back later when the Sister can get the records.

Will try ringing local register office too.

Thanks again.

Oh SH!t.

Rung local register office.

Have a record that may be her.

Have to send £7 to request death certificate and any info I have and they will see if it matches.

If she was at the hospital why did you ring the records office?

or did you mean was in the past tense?

NAB3 Thu 27-Sep-07 13:18:04

I meant she had been there.

NAB3 Thu 27-Sep-07 14:08:57

Have spoke to the hospital. She died.

Well I have no idea who you're talking about, but I'm sorry that someone has died who you obviously didn't want to have.

lilibet Thu 27-Sep-07 14:15:53

Sorry sad

It was my Grandma and we had hassles from my mother regarding the safety of my children. Another link to the past gone.

CantSleepWontSleep Thu 27-Sep-07 14:17:58

Oh how awful to have to search to find out that your grandma has died. I am sorry Nab.

LilRedWG Thu 27-Sep-07 14:18:58

So sorry NAB.

lilibet Thu 27-Sep-07 14:20:09

Really sorry NAB, did you know her in the past?

Was she old? I know we think of Grandma's as bing old but soem aren't
