Series 11 Ep 20 – Clive Frederick Cable

s11e20

A look into the life of a community figure and tug of war team enthusiast, who sadly had no immediate family. Clive Frederick Cable’s case was referred to us by Great Yarmouth Council. We often receive referrals from public sector services when people die in hospitals or care homes, and there doesn’t seem to be a will or any immediate family.

Clive Frederick Cable

Clive Frederick Cable’s case was referred to us by Great Yarmouth Council. We often receive referrals from public sector services when people die in hospitals or care homes, and there doesn’t seem to be a will or any immediate family.
Clive, we quickly discovered, was a big character in the community. He set up a tug of war team, the Reading Vikings and in 37 years, they managed to win 600 trophies. He organised lots of activities in the community and was known as Fred to his friends.
We couldn’t find a birth certificate for him with the details we’d been given, but after playing around with the name, we found a record for him under the title, Shirley Frederick Clive Cable.
Fred was an only child. His father had died when Fred was only 12 years old. There was a possibility that Fred’s mother had remarried, but we found no records for any full or half-blood siblings.
After a false turn – we found heirs that were related to each other, but not to the deceased – our search started again, and we found heirs to Stuart’s £32,000 estate on the paternal side.
