DORSET’S coroner is appealing for the public’s help to find the next of kin of an 81-year-old who died in Poole.

Robert Stewart died at his home in Holt Road on Sunday, February 18.

No police investigation is necessary into his death as it is not being treated as suspicious.

Coroner's officer Tracey Jeans said: “We are not treating the death as suspicious, however we have not been able to locate his next of kin.

“If any member of the public has any knowledge of his family members, please contact us as soon as possible on 01202 123900.”
