I would like to know the date, on the Gregorian Calendar, of the

The Hebrew date extends >from sunset to sunset, so strictly there are two secular
dates for every Hebrew date and if the Hebrew date of death is given, for instance,
the corresponding secular date of death will depend on the time of day at which
the person died.

Anybody whose family member died near nightfall will have been questioned as to the
exact time of death in order to determine the precise Hebrew date of death.
