Obit Govan 1942

Post by raindrop » Sun Sep 09, 2018 9:50 pm

Would someone be able to tell me if there is an obit for
John Wallace who died in March of 1942, in Govan?

Thanks!

Older enquiries elsewhere about what appears to be the same death give a date of 15 March.

Death/funeral notices in the Glasgow Herald in the 1940's were in the first columns of page one.

To navigate to other dates click on “Browse this newspaper.”

I couldn't find anything in the week following the above date but best to have a look yourself.

Best of luck,
Alan

It is more likely to have been published in the Govan Press.
Sadly those archives aren't on-line anywhere it seems.

Perhaps the Mitchel Library has them?

Thank you.
Apologies for asking again - forgot that I already asked this question.

I can't find my John Wallace .... hopefully the other Govan newspaper will appear online sometime!
