Appeal to Trace Family of Dead Man

Coroner's Office wants help to trace elderly man's relatives

Swansea Coroner's Office are trying to trace the family of a man who was found dead at his home in Neath. 

80-year-old James Bishop was discovered at his home on Heol Catwg in Caewern on 8 February.

Despite making local enquiries the coroners' office has been unable to trace Mr Bishops' next of kin.

He was born on 1 September 1937 in Neath and was a retired Council worker.

It has been suggested that he may have a sister who lives in Birchgrove but enquiries have failed to find her.

Mr Bishop was believed to have lived originally in Longford and later moved to Caewern.

Anyone who knows of a family member of Mr Bishop is asked to contact the Coroner's Office on 01792 636505, quoting reference 1800048912.
