  • The end of the road: Le Grand's death

    As Debra Arif has noted elsewhere, one online source for deaths in Denmark is the Copenhagen burial registers.

    It is with some sorrow that I post the following link:
    http://www.kbharkiv.dk/kildeviser/#!?collection=5&item=96696

    I direct your attention to nr. 6390:

    Details in rough translation are:

    Full name: Charles Grant
    Marital status: divorced ("skilt") underlined
    Birthday/year: 24/3 1853
    Place of birth: Ireland
    Occupation: former language teacher
    Residence: Lundtoftegade 101, 1st
    Day of death: 6th december (1935)
    Place of death: Bispebjerg Hospital
    Cause of death: hyperbolia prostatae arteri oseberosis [? not sure]
    Death registered in : Kapernaum parish registry
    Buried: 12/12 from North side chapel at 2:45
    on: Vestre Kirkegård
    Burial plot: XII-14-28 Nykøb I Nl [? not sure]

      Excellent Kattrup!

      I wouldn't have thought to look for him as Grant but the birth in Ireland seems to support it being him. He just pipped wife Elizabeth to the post. Interestingly she was described as a widow in probate records in the UK.

      I am not DJA. He's called Dave.

        Well done, Kattrup! I think that's 'arteriosclerosis.' Looks like he had prostate and heart trouble.

                I found him in the probate records registry, but the records for 1935 are not online.

                https://www.sa.dk/ao-soegesider/bill...51279,37970950

                About halfway down the page:

                Grant, Charles. Widower, former language teacher ----1-217-3W

                So there's the reference to finding the actual probate records, but it will necessitate visiting the National Archives' reading room.

                  It would be interesting to see the probate. Widower and divorced? He was a strange man - unless he remarried.

                      Excellent reasearch!
                      I'm constantly amazed at just how much information is still out there.
