Looking for Joan in Camborne, Cornwall

+2 votes
Hello Wikitreers,

I'm trying to locate a cousin of mine - her name is Joan Matthews, formerly Prior, of Camborne, Cornwall, England. She was born in 1924, and I know that she was alive as of April 2008 (when my grandmother passed away, and my family was in contact with her). I'm trying to find out if Joan has since passed away, but I have no way to search the obituaries for Cornwall (I'm in Ontario, Canada).

I was wondering if anyone had access to these records (post-2008 is pretty recent, and I was hoping they'd be online) or could point me in the right direction. If you need any more information, please let me know!

Thank you,

- Gillian

Thank you so much, Vivian! I'm thinking she's probably the second (Joan Ena Marjorie) as her aunt's name was Ena.
