Thread Name: BS: Finding Obits in Wales?
Subject: BS: Finding Obits in Wales?
An odd one, I know. I'm hoping a UK catter can suggest the most likely publication/place where one would find recent (last couple days) either obits or just deaths reported in Wales.
Back story. A good poster, very learned geologist living in Wales posts on a sciencey board I belong to - a huge board. A friend of his posted briefly and very convincingly, just a couple of times, to say that he had died suddenly. We are saddened, of course, but given the possibility of hoaxing, a few posters are finding it hard to believe. I thought, given the info I do have - first name, profession, and reported circumstances, I might be able to match this up with an obit or death notice in Wales.
But of course, I have no idea what newspapers, etc. might be likely ones, so I'd be most grateful for some advice. Thank you all.
