THE Coroner's Office for Wiltshire and Swindon are appealing for the public's help in locating the next of kin of a man who died last week.

Dennis John Hewitt, 76, of Matley Moor, Liden, died at his home address on August 13.

His cause of death is still to be established.

The only relative Mr Hewett had in the UK is a sister-in-law who lives in Cirencester.
Mr Hewett had a son called Nicholas but there has not been contact for many years.

It is believed that the deceased had a brother in western Australia and attempts are being made to locate him.

Mr. Hewett’s late wife was Irene Hewett. 

Anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Mr Hewett's next of kin are asked to call Coroner's Officer Mo Davey on 01793 507841.
