We seem to have had a lot of appeals in the last few months to trace the family of local deceased people – but I make no apology for running another one; these appeals are essential, and I really feel for anyone who passes away alone.
With that in mind, Walsall Environmental Heath Department have issued an appeal to trace the family of Darlaston man Geoffrey Smith of Park Street, who passed away on the 5th February 2015.
The Department issued the following request:
Plea for family of deceased Darlaston man
Residents are asked to help find family members of a deceased man.
Mr Geoffrey Smith of Park Street, Darlaston was found deceased at home on 5 February 2015.
The 66 year old worked at Port Engineering in Willenhall between 1992 and 1994 and then cared for his sick mother Winifred Betsy Smith until 2000.
Neil Harris, principal environmental health officer, said: ‘We extend our sympathies to friends or family of Mr Smith at this sad time.
‘It appears Mr Smith hadn’t worked for a while but he was previously been employed in milling and drilling jobs.
‘He may have had a fiance called Pauline at some point as well.
‘If anyone knows Mr Smith or his family we ask them to get in touch with us.’
Anyone with information is asked to contact Rebecca Evans on 01922 653052.
Thanks in advance. If anyone would prefer no to contact the council directly for whatever reason, email me at BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot come and I’ll pass any messages on.
