As far as I know Ian is still in Edgware.
He might be, but he didn't reply to me last summer. True, the letter didn't come back as Adressee not found either.

Perhaps it would be an idea to write a/the couple of questions we have ? He is not the youngest anymore.

Ian Burgess' birthplace has been a Holy Grail mystery search for me, as some of you who know me will know. Even the late David McKinney couldn't discover it when he was doing the interviews for the mooted book about Burgess' life. Ian's death, and now David's removed any chance of knowing for certain. - the problem being Ian was adopted, from a London site and went to live in Bletchingley.
The birthplace is indeed still a mystery, but thanks to the Death Certificate which I had ordered, which arrived today, it has at least confirmed IB was NOT born in London - he was indeed, as David managed to eek out of IB, born in Scotland.
The failure of the death certificate to have the full birthplace means it'll probably be a mystery forever. Those that know are dead, or didn't keep records. Adoption records back then are very, very difficult to keep track of. Looking at Scottish records, there's not much joy either.
For the record the death certificate confirms:
born 6 July 1930, Scotland, died 19th May 2012, Northwick Park Hospital, Harrow, Middlesex. Occupation was: Formula 1 racing driver (retired). Last lived in Harrow itself.
Causes of death: Heart Disease/Diabetes. David did mention IB had problems with diabetes when he met him in 2010-2011.
