Urgent: Search for ancestor HJ Roux
Good day

I am a South African citizen.For years I am searching for my granddad's(HJ Roux - Identity card: 015994505? issued in Pretoria on 15/01/1957) information.This information seems to be strange as he apparently died on 24 December 1955( Grave no.61306A NGM2 ABM). I also have an estate no. 48118. I have an idea that people deliberately do not want me and my mom Ellen Philander (maiden name October) to trace his history. As far as I can trace HJ Roux came to South Africa with a boat which capsized ear Skipskop. He married a miss Bantam (a Coloured lady). Out of his wedlock several children - George,Herman, Jan, Magdalena, Ellen, Isabel, Johannes and Eva - were born. He owned several farms ranging from Waenhuiskrans up to Swellendam.

I need your government's help urgently to solve this case once and for all. Several of my family members already lost their lives in trying to solve this.

I also need to know what the advertisement your government placed regarding British ancestry.

British passport expired
Application for British Passport renewal
I wish to enquire whether I can renew my expired passport (expired 1990) or if a new application is required. My son has been offered a working position in the UK, what is the current status for eligibility for a British passport if both sets of grandparents were born in the UK and I hold an expired British passport. Thank you
