Freddie Cross

Just received this request,please any information will help

Hi,
As a journalist and author (and member of the Welsh EBA!), I'm working on a book about the boxers of Newport and Monmouthshire - the fifth in my series 'The Boxers of Wales' - and am trying to track down Freddie Cross, who was Welsh middleweight champion in the 1950s. Originally from Abertillery, he grew up in Nuneaton and was based during his pro career at Bermondsey. I believe he remained in London after he retired. If he is still alive, he would be 80. Does anybody know his whereabouts or, if he has passed on, when he died?
Any whispers or rumours, however vague, would still be more than I have at the moment!
Regards,
Gareth Jones
