In no way do we pretend to be the best death list, the most successful death list or the definitive word in death lists. It's just our death list and this is how we do it.

Success is measured against how we did it in previous years and for ease of comparison we try to do it the same way each year. i.e. we meet in the pub, argue a lot and then the Grim Reaper goes home and mis-types up the results

I'm happy with that format anyway. Viva the Death List - long may it prosper.
It's a shame that ALL of the below posts are MISINFORMATION.

1. The official 'world's oldest person' has died ONCE, not SIX TIMES, this year. Hendrikje Van Andel's Aug 30 2005 death was preceded by Ramona Trinidad Iglesias-Jordan--May 29 2004. The prior death to that was in Nov 2003.

2. There is no validated 125-year-old.

3. Calment holds the all-time record, but she is no longer living.

4. No official person from 1880.

5. The Dominican claim to age 128 is UNVALIDATED. The "records" were written in the year 2000, that doesn't prove birth in 1875.

Strange, the only posts below that statement were made by, er, Robert Young. Rather foolish to post statements that you know are misinforming, I would have thought.

With the exception of Jesus, Lazarus and bad comedians, I thought everybody only died once and not six times. Some people obviously just can't make their minds up!
It is surely better to be pissed off than pissed on

The UK's oldest person has died aged 113

I'd take issue with one statement in that report. Surely, anyone who was born before 1901 has lived through the reigns of six monarchs (assuming, of course, that they lived in the UK or a Commonwealth country). They might not be able to recall much of Queen Victoria, though.

I was born in Ulan Bator in 1863, and therefore turned 142 this year. Unfortunately all documents relating to my birth and the first 105 years of life were destroyed in a fire.

It's true.

She didn't live through the reigns of six monarchs. She was alive during only part of the reigns of Victoria and the present monarch.

In order to live through the reigns of all six, she would have had to have been born at the latest in 1837 and couldn't die until after Elizabeth II dies or abdicates.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

You're right, of course, but I'm sure the report said "five monarchs" earlier. :lol: In any case it should have been four, in which case someone would only have needed to live from 1900 to 1953, not very impressive really.

Re the world's oldest being 'soft' targets. If you hit them I'd guess some of the skinnier ones would be pretty boney. Not exactly soft.

Holy crap, how fascinating. I was going to put Lizzie Bolden on my 2006 DDP, but if she's no longer the world's oldest person, then I doubt she'll get an obit.

I wouldn't put my money on Mrs. Capovilla dying next year either. From that picture, she looks almost as healthy as someone half her age.

Good for you Ecuador, way to stick it to America. ;)

It really isn't a good time for Britain's oldest people is it.

First there was Alfred Anderson, then the Indian born Lucy woman, and now some Polish guy who was thought to be the oldest man living in Britain.

Woman from Ecuador aged 116 is now the world's oldest person.

The oldest man ever recorded by Guinness was 120 years old; the oldest woman was 122.

Looking at the picture, it looks as though she has failed to recognise the end of the Victorian era. :ghost:
