Trying to trace my cousin Raymond Peter Palmer (b1947 Salisbury.)and his wife Beryl. The last I know was he attended his brothers funeral in 2019 and left a message on the Obituary.

Have you checked the Electoral Roll?

They may, of course, have opted out of the public version.................

I see you have included him in your GR tree……………..

Do you know who the funeral directors were? If they have a family contact address, they may be prepared to forward a letter from you.

If you don't know the funeral directors but know where the funeral was held / where the family lived you could google and ring round local firms.

Possibly in Liverpool if you look on

Raymond and Beryl appear to have married in 1968.

They are together on the ER for Eastleigh, Hants in 2005, but I don't see them together later.

There are lots of ER listings for women named Beryl M Palmer (or just Beryl Palmer), and also for men named Raymond (or Raymond P) Palmer - but it's impossible to know if any of them are the people you're looking for.

They had one son (possibly two) , but I can't see either of them definitely on the ERs.

The one in Liverpool is probably the one who was born there...................

What was the name of the brother who died?


ArgyllGran Report 24 Apr 2024 17:24

No help with address - but. . . . .
my guess is that this man living in the Bath area isn't the Liverpool man:

But FreeBMD shows births of two other Raymond P Palmers whose middle names we don't know.

They have a son Adam Lee Palmer b 1973.
I have made contact with Raymond Peter's brothers sons. But there was a family fallout and after grans death all contact was lost.


ArgyllGran Report 24 Apr 2024 22:38

As mentioned earlier, Beryl and Raymond were in Eastleigh for a time.

An Adam Lee Palmer of about the right age was in Eastleigh until at least 2014.
There is no record of the address having been sold since then, so he may still be there.

He's listed with a Deborah J Palmer.
They probably married in Winchester reg district in 1998.

Look at the Electoral Rolls , under "Search" at top right of this page.
When you find the right result, click on the document symbol to the right of the result to see the full address.

I can't guarantee that's the right man, of course.
