Appeal launched to track down relatives of Irishman who passed away in London this month

STAFF AT a hospital in London are appealing for help in locating the relatives of an Irishman who died in the English capital earlier this month.

Kevin Doyle passed away, aged 67, at St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington on Monday, December 2, 2019.

Mr Doyle, who resided in Harlesden prior to his death, was born to Irish parents in Birmingham in 1952.

He moved back to Carlow in Ireland as a child to live with his grandmother.

His mother is believed to have remained in the Birmingham area with a son and daughter.

Mr Doyle later served in the Irish Army before moving to London at some point between 1974 and 1976.

He found work in England as a machine driver and lorry driver.

A popular figure in the local Harlesden community, Mr Doyle was more commonly known as “Mission” to his friends.

Hospital staff are trying to track down any relatives Mr Doyle may have in either the UK or Ireland.

They remain hopeful of locating surviving relatives in Carlow and Birmingham with Mr Doyle thought to have family members in both regions.

Anyone with information on Mr Doyle's family are encouraged to contact on Carmel 00 44 79 7377 7449 if calling from Ireland or 07973777449 from the UK.
