Cornwall Obituary for Robert Matthews

+4 votes
Hello Wikitreers,

I am hoping that someone can help me find (or at least point me in the direction of) a specific obituary from Camborne, Redruth, Cornwall, England. The obituary in question is that of Robert Matthews, who I believe passed away in March 2002. According to the civil death registration index, he was born on February 4, 1921. He married a cousin of mine, Joan Prior, in 1940 (also in Redruth, Cornwall).

If anyone is in the area and has access to the archives there, happens to recognize either name, or even if they know where to access this obituary online (I'm in Canada, so I'm not able to visit myself), any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

- Gillian
