My father was a merchant seaman and I was the last one to see him alive. He for some reason, mentioned to me, out of the blue "If anything happens to me your Mum will be alright"
He went back to sea and was drowned when the ship was sunk in the English Channel (this was in 1957)
We never did find the source of this information - presumably he was talking money and it was never found
His name George Victor Andrews (he was the cook on board)
The ship he was on was Lisbeth M
Our home address was 6 Dashwood Close, Belton, Gt.Yarmouth
His previous ship was Polly M
He had recently moved from the Polly to the Lisbeth
Maybe now would be the time to create a register for accounts or investments which have not been active for maybe 2 years - it could be compulsory to either contact the owner or dependent to verify everything is ok or transfer assets to dependent etc.
Yours in anticipation
