I'm sorry that you did not get a reply to your original query. Any reply would have been on the website -but I can't find your query on our web site. However, there is a Frederick R BAKER living in Shirehampton on the 1939 Register - his date of birth is given as 19 Jan 1917 which could well be the same man. His wife's name is Mary. As that information is available it looks as if he has died.
There is a death registered in Bristol in 1981 of a Frederick Robert BAKER was born 19 Feb 1917. Although this date is not correct errors of that nature are not uncommon on death certificates. It would be worth checking it out. Death registered 4th qrt 1981 Bristol 22 1135.
I have now heard from Eddie Priest that someone has answered this query directly to him having found the death of a Frederick Ronald BAKER in 2017 on Find my Past. I hadn't realised that they had deaths as late as 2017 on Find my Past, but these are from the private company which has compiled information from various sources. Anyway it seems that my suggestion was not the correct one and well done to whoever contacted Eddie Priest.
