Death notes A date of 10 December 1942 has been suggested by historian Tony Matthews, but there is no registration to confirm this.  However, a registration in Manchester was found for June 1958, and at the age of 87, his birth can only be placed as 1871.  His last known whereabouts was the 1911 census...in Manchester.
