Can someone suggest a Jewish newspaper which might have carried an
obituary or death notice for a death that occurred in 1949 in London?

Almost certainly the Jewish Chronicle (if the family sent in a notice at
all). The J.C. was founded in 1841, and throughout most of its history has
been the "national" Anglo-Jewish weekly, so people >from other cities
besides London used to send their announcements there.

We used to refer affectionately to the b/m/d page as the "Hatches, Matches
and Dispatches." However the actual column is (or was) called "Social and
Personal" -- I remember that we used to joke that it was high time Social
got engaged to Personal......

If you can actually pinpoint the month as well as the year, it should be
easy to find someone who could look it up for you in some large university
library that has the JC on microfiche. Or maybe write to the JC directly
(sorry I don't know their e-mail address but I'm sure you can find them on
the web).

Yes. The 'Jewish Chronicle' which has been a
newspaper since 1841
