Re: Walter Kirton (Major - retired) and wife Elizabeth

In Reply to: Walter Kirton (Major - retired) and wife Elizabeth by Miriam Ruth Macdonald of 532

My great uncle, Major Walter Kirton, died in Nairobi, Kenya 16 March, 1937. His residence was at Ruiri. I have a copy of the Notice of Application for probate of the will (General Notice No. 683), and General Notice No. 825 noting that the probate was granted to his nephew, Captain Walter Kirton who was the executor (and my uncle)and is also deceased.

I would like to find three items, 1) a copy of the will, 2) a copy of his obituary notice and 3) a copy of his death certificate.

Can anyone tell me how to go about this. I assume the records would still be in Nairobi, possibly on microfiche in some government and/or library archives.
