British death records -- can you help?[edit]

Hi, Andrew. Ironholds recommended you as possibly being able to assist in tracking down the British/English death records of two Olympic and Empire Games swimmers from the 1930s. They were husband and wife and possibly living in Gloucestershire when they died in 1991 and 1998. Greatr detail is provided on Ironholds' talk page: User talk:Ironholds#Kick the bucket (?). Specifically looking for exact dates of death -- can you help? FYI, this could be a prelude to a wider project -- I'm working my way through 216 Canadian Olympic swimmers now, but next month I'm tackling the 260 British Olympic swimmers, and I'm sure the ability to fill in the blanks for some of these old-timers will be handy.

  • Good morning, Andrew. Got another Olympic mystery: Florence Barker, British swimmer and silver medallist at the 1924 Paris Olympics. Got a name and a birth year (1908), nothing else. No exact birth date, no birth place, no full name, no married name, no date or place of death. Any data you can find would be greatly appreciated. Dirtlawyer1 (talk) 11:13, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Tricky, this one. Common name so the records won't be much help. Your best bet might be to trawl through the British Newspaper Archive (WP:TWL had some accounts available, so someone might be able to do lookups) in say 1924-34 looking for a story about her getting married - I'm guessing a former Olympic medallist would be a minor local celebrity and they would cover her getting married, if briefly, and mention her background.
