Question:

I am searching for William Leonard Wade, born Nova Scotia.  I am looking for his death record from Wrentham Mass. about 1924. He was a shipbuilder, navigator, pilot, apple farmer, and died in a complete mystery as to when and where he was buried.

Answer:

In regard to William Leonard Wade, you will want to get a copy of his death record. He did die at Wrentham in 1924. You can either write to the Wrentham Town Hall, 79 South Street, Wrentham, MA 02093 and request the copy from them or you can write to the Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records and Statistics, 150 Mt. Vernon Street, #1, Dorchester, MA 02125. You may want to try Wrentham Town Hall first, as they are likely to be cheaper. Be sure to include in your research to them that you wish to know the place of burial (in case they are sending you a certified transcription rather than a photocopy of the original records). If you order it through the Massachusetts Registry of Vital Records and Statistics, you will want to tell them that the record you are requesting is “William L. Wade, Death, 1924, volume 95, page 380.” They will send you a certified photocopy of the original record.
