I live in England.
I am trying to find the Death Notice for William Herbert Kenneth TAYLOR born 1901 Ryde,Isle of Wight,England. He emigrated to S Africa/Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) in 1947.
I have found the following reference using the Family Search web site - 88/188/38.
I believe he died in Zimbabwe between 1950 and 1960 and his widow returned to the UK in Nov 1960.
If the number 88 refers to the Death Register volume number
then the death occured in 1952.
Can someone please explain what 188 and 38 refer to. I think the 38 refers to the page number in volume 88 but what does 188 refer to?
Are there any newspaper archives that may have an obitury I could see and perhaps learn more about him, ie where he was buried.
I really would appreciate some kind person's help with this enquiry.
