Important appeal: Did you know James Green?

Blockall Close is near the centre of Darlaston. Image from Apple Maps.

This is one of those requests that pops up from time to time, and was issued by the Communication Team at Walsall Council this week and I’d like all locals to have a think about it, and if any of you can do so, please help.

I must admit, this is a sad case and these do tug at my heart quite a bit – imagine passing away and leaving so little information of yourself known. How terribly tragic.

An appeal to find the family of a recently deceased Walsall man has been launched.

Environmental health officers are keen to get in touch with any family members of James Green, who lived at 13 Blockall Close, Darlaston.

He passed away at his home on Friday, March 17 at the age of 66.

Local residents are now being asked to help with the search for his relatives.

Paul Rooney, environmental health team leader, said: ‘We would like to pass on our condolences to Mr Green’s family and friends. We would be grateful to hear from any relatives of Mr Green or anyone who might have helpful information about his family so that they can make arrangements for his funeral.’

If anyone has any information about Mr Green’s family, they are asked to contact Rebecca Evans in environmental health on 01922 653052 or

I often run these kinds of request, mainly because I feel that whatever has occurred within families, we’d all prefer to know of the loss of one of ours. Finding the relatives can be as much about closure as anything else, so please help if you can.

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.
