Swedish Death Index lookup: Hildur Eleonora McManus (nee Ekholm)
Posted by: Barry Gray (ID *****9052) Date: October 09, 2013 at 22:35:30

I have a great aunt who was born in Sweden, but lived most of her life in England, India, and Sri Lanka (Ceylon at time). But Ancestry shows me her birth details in the Swedish Death Index but does not show the death details. I assume later in life she moved back to Sweden where she died.

Can someone tell me how to look up the death index or find out the details for me? This might be under ‘Hildur Eleonora Ekholm’ or ‘Hildur Eleonora McManus’

Anything else would also be appreciated.

She was born Hildur Eleonora Ekholm in 1887, at Torrskog Älvsborgs County
I have her leaving England in 1914 for India
She married James McManus, he was born 1889, Shoreditch, London, England

Hildur and James were Salvation Army missionaries and travelled between England/India/Ceylon a number of times.
They had a son Karl and I can only assume they were married and the son was born in India as I cannot find these in the UK records.
The last record I have found for her was travelling from England to India in 1949.

Barry Gray,
Auckland, New Zealand
