Hi Tina,


Where you could start is by looking at FreeBMD

https://www.freebmd.org.uk

He is there but not in Sheffield.

Are you sure his body was brought back to Sheffield???

Elaine in Ottawa.

PS. I have just looked at Ancestry and there are a number of Trees there with Alfred on them.

He died in 1961 or so it seems the chap that died in 1965 Alfred G Cowen was born in Hull.

The 1961 chap was born in Sheffield

This will help you know where next to research.

Birth: 11 Dec 1893 - Yorkshire
Death: Dec 1961 - Riding, England

It's possible other burials were added to this plot at a later date.
