    Default Dr Sydney Rutherford

    My Uncle Syd was knocked down by a vehicle in France in August 1976. Where would I find any announcement of his death. His home was in Dorset near Weymouth.

    Hi hitch37 and welcome.

    Is this your uncle?

    There is a matching death listed in the GRO Indices. However, I thought I'd check with you first, since you say he died in August, but the Sydney Rutherford in the obituary above died in May.

    Default Uncle Syd

    Hi Olliecat,

    He is my Uncle but it maybe there's an incorrect date in my notebook re the month of his death. It was 1976

    Thanks for your suggestion

    I didn't find anything else relating to the details of his death, apart from the obituary which I gave you a link for in post #3. I thought you may want the GRO index details, in case you ever decided to order his death certificate.

    I came across a couple of other tidbits, which you may have seen already. Here he is age 5 with his parents in the 1911 ireland census...

    There is a also a transcription of the baptism of one his children at Firbeck, on this site here...

    Hi Hitch, that could be because the links I have posted on this thread have been split into two lines. I.e.

    www.
    ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1687400/pdf/brmedj00526-0067.pdf

    The reason for splitting the link over two lines is to prevent it from becoming clickable. This is just to be on the safe side, since posting direct clickable links to sites with advertising is not allowed on this forum. You shouldn't have any problems if you join the two lines together; the www. with ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1687400/pdf/brmedj00526-0067.pdf

    However, since the link to the obituary goes straight to a PDF I don't really need to split it. So here it below as full clickable link...

    Hello. I was a very close friend of your uncle in the 70's when he was a GP in Finchley, he was known as John.I have many details and photos, I went to his funeral in Yeovil. Happy to hear from you if you are interested.

    Hello B S Daisy,
    It was good to find your thread. I hadn't looked at the site for yonks. I'd be delighted if you'd be happy to share what you knew about Syd/John - no one in our family knew him as John! Do you have a record of the date of his funeral? Or indeed his date of death? Are the circumstances of the traffic accident known - or reported anywhere? I am struggling to remember why our family wasn't represented at the funeral. Syd was my Dad's middle brother of 3. Best wishes,

    Hitch
