Can You Help?

An elderly British man in Almuñécar died recently and the Guardia Civil are having trouble locating his next of kin.

He was part of the foreign community in Almuñécar so there will be people who know him but the question is, do they know who his next of kin is?

It appears that Fred had no offspring, nor as far as the police can ascertain, relatives, so they are finding it very hard to inform his next of kin about his death.

So, if you know Fred, or better said, anything about him, please leave a comment under this article and we shall make sure that the Guardia Civil receive this information.

Perhaps one of our readers in the UK might be able to help?

    I’m Fred’s friend and ex Partner. I know he’s got a sister in the uk who he found recently and was in touch with. I hope this helps.

    My name is Linda. I have been told by a vet that Zeb, Fred’s dog, has been taken in by a British family in Itrabo. Can anyone confirm this so that we know he is okay.

    The lawyer would have registered the will with the notary and once signed, the Notary submits the information to a central registry of wills, which is located at the Spanish Ministry of Justice in Madrid.

    Mandy: this info came from the Guardia Civil via an English teacher in a state, secondary-education school, who maintained close contact with him. She’s unavailable until Monday, so we can’t ask about the dog. It was a neighbour who alerted the police in the first place, so perhaps they have the dog. Do you know who the lawyer was?

    I am a friend of Fred’s. I knew him in Almunecar and UK and stayed at his house last year to help him.
    He had no next of kin but he said he had left a Will with his lawyer.
    I would like to know where his dog, Zeb is.
    Can I be of assistance?
