Recording Information about a Persons Death  When information is available, the database will record that a Member has died. The death of a BT Pensioner, who is not a member, may also be recorded. This means that a search for a person who is recorded a deceased, will show a result as deceased, rather than no result at all. If you have been unsuccessful looking for an old friend you may wish to view the list of deceased pensioners on a protected page. Click Here


Quite Often news of the death of BT pensioner becomes available sometime after the actual Funeral. However I believe that it may still be of interest to include details here and to record the deceased person in the site database.

Please note Email Addresses recorded against deceased persons are completely fictitious in order to satisfy the database format. I have tried to ensure that these email addresses are not displayed anywhere but if this should happen you will understand why. Well! you wouldn't expect an active email address. Would You?!
