Lord Lucan, who is said to have last been seen alive in Uckfield, is now officially presumed dead.
A death certificate was issued yesterday (February 3) in the High Court.
Lord Lucan disappeared after the murder in November 1974 of his children’s nanny in central London, writes Paul Watson.
Lucan is known to have come south after the incident and visited friends at Grants Hill House, now demolished.
He was not seen again, although his car was found at the port of Newhaven.
Since then there have been numerous reporting sightings of Lord Lucan but none confirmed.
There have also been many theories as to what happened to him with many suggestions he left England to live in anonymity abroad.
Lord Lucan had disappeared, it seems, into thin air.
Do you remember Grants Hill House at the time of Lord Lucan’s visit? What was it like?
What are your memories of how Uckfield reacted in 1974 when the story broke.
