    I need your help again please GS!
    I am trying to find the obits of two sister's and a brother. Tragically, one of the sister's (Joan) and the brother ( Trevor) both committed suicide and I'm not sure on the other sister!

    Their names and date of birth and death are:

    Trevor Stanley Morgan - dob: 1 Jun 1923, Norwich - Nov 1986, Melton Mowbray, Leic
    Joan Elizabeth Morgan - dob: 29 Mar 1921, Norwich - 1 Jul 1971, Serfaus, Tirol, Austria
    Rosemary Ann Morgan - dob: 27 May 1929, Nowich - 24 Mar 1954, Norwich

    On the 1939 census for Rosemary, beside her name written in ink are the initials: ECIA NOR 82.54. I'm not sure if it is a newspaper initial or an insurance company??

    Anyways, any help with obits would be greatly appreciated.
    Many thanks
    Polly

    I have tried to find Rosemary on the 1939 Register to have a look at this but am probably looking in the wrong place... :( Do you have a reference or further details of where she may be found, please?

    difficult to find her Jan as she is transcribed as Rosemary Anne Osbourne
    but is down as Morgan on register itself lady below her is Sylvia Osbourne:headbang:
    I think the figures are to do with her death as she died in 1954
    have tried to find obits with no luck

    Closest I came is the Probate for Rosemary -admin to Harold N Morgan, a retired company director. Also on 1939 as b. 1887.

    I've been trying for obits in newspapers. All seem to start in recent 2000s. I wonder if you asked of local Norwich & other newspapers they could check their archives for you.?
    Austria may be a long grab, but her death may have been copied to UK or placed in by rellies.
    good luck.

    Yes I too think it is worth checking out local newspapers. I assume there must have been inquests.

    Thank you very much for all your efforts, as always.
    Sorry not have made Rosemary's entry on 1939 census clearer.

    I'll keep on trawling and hope to find something on the inquest.

    Many thanks again

    For those of you who helped do some research on this matter for me, I thought I'd just update you.
    I managed to find out what the ECIA initials beside Rosemary's name meant. It shows that there was an inquest into her death (Eastern Counties Inquest A) Having found the report written in the local newspaper it seems tragically she died from burns due to a small electrical fire.

    What a tragic family they were!
    thanks as always for your efforts.
