I am looking for any information on the George KIRK who died at an unknown location in Kent in 1946.

I have this information concerning George:

- born Dundee, Forfarshire (now Angus), Scotland in 1870
- may have been living in London at the time of the 1901 census
- married in Dublin, Ireland c.1902 to Esther Mary (maiden name unknown)
- had 3 known children (info from 1911 census): Eleanor Louise Kirk (born Dublin c. 1902), George David Kirk (born London c. 1905), and Margaret Kathleen Kirk (born Essex c. 1909)
- was living with his wife and family in East Ham, Essex at the time of the 1911 census
- died in an unknown location in Kent in 1946

I am hoping to prove that this George Kirk was my great uncle, the son of David Kirk and Margaret Fender of Dundee, Scotland.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi

The only death for a George KIRK in Kent in 1946 is:
George KIRK age 76 Jun 1946 Dartford v.2a p.929.

The age matches the year of birth you've given.

This George KIRK appears on the probate register as follows:

George KIRK of 19 Methuen Road Bexley Heath, Kent d.21 May 1946. Administration London 15 October to Margaret Kathleen Allen (wife of James Kingsley Allen) and Thomas Harry William Hitchens engineer. Effects £252 9s 1d.

There is a marriage in June 1933 West Ham of Margaret Kathleen KIRK to James Kingsley ALLEN so it looks as though this is the family you're looking for.

Obtaining the death certificate may provide additional clues, such as name and address of other relatives.

Regards
Linda

Thank you so much for your help in getting me the information I needed for my Kirk family tree. I know it was your probate query that got the good results. I am now quite sure that the George Kirk who died in Kent is indeed my great uncle.

Thanks again.
