Helping people locate friends and family they’ve lost contact with

FINCH: Peter Charles, died January 10, 1993. Last known address was 19 Privett House, Cumberland Street, Portsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire PO1 3JS, England. Spouse, Catherine.

I am assisting a friend in locating his siblings. He has not seen them since the early 1990s. The last address we have for his sister, Catherine, was in Portsea, Portsmouth, Hampshire, England when she wrote to inform the family of the death of her husband, Peter Finch.

As I am unfamiliar with record keeping in England, I am unable to locate a death announcement for Peter with hopes of being able to find names and locations of other family members.

I am hoping that, with the information I have provided, someone will have knowledge of or access to the death announcement, or surviving family members.
