View Full Version : Death notice in Wolverhampton newspaper 1919
28-04-2009, 1:34 PM
Looking for an article on John Thomas Law who died in Francis St Wolverhamton on 20th March 1919 aged 74. He was an employer at J & J Harriman., Iron braziers of Middle St Wolverhampton.
He seems to have been well known and I feel sure there would have been something written of his life & death.
Appreciate any help.

I do not know where you are located, so am not sure how easy it would be for you to follow up on this. However.....
According to the British Library Newspaper Catalogue, the newspapers that could have an obituary are:
The Express and Star
The Assurance Review
Perhaps an email to the Wolverhampton Archives may bear fruit, if you are unable to visit the BL Newspaper Archives.

I'm in Somerset and have just got the details of John's death. I may make it to Wolverhampton but was hoping someone might be able to do a look-up! Rather lazy I guess. I did post another query earlier and got the article concerned. So I was hoping for the same again.
However thanks for the info. I know when I've needed news articles before I've had to go to the local records office and trawl the pages.

I don't know if you have been to http://www.blackcountryhistory.org , but if you put John thomas Law in hte search you come up with 11 items. mostly seem to do with his will and houses he owned

hi only just joined this wonderful site and am researching my maiden name harriman. Recently I visited Wolverhamp
ton Archieves and it is a wonderful place also their website does have quite a few things available. Worth giving them a call. I dint find my grandparents until the 1911 census and it opened up such a lot of links which i have yet to make sense of but will happily share when i do. Such as my search town always was wolverhamnpton or staffordshire with no good results. but Cannock and shelve and huntington has found them and more and a brother of my grandads who was living with them so yet another line. good luck
