I have a list of several names. Some listed individuals are deceased.
Question: What are the ways to indicate that these particular individuals passed away?
The most obvious way is to indicated "(deceased)" after the person's name. I know that one can also use a dagger (†) or refer to the person as "the late Mr./Ms. Doe". I then learned in References to deceased persons that one can use "RIP" as suffix as well.
However, for some reasons, these solutions are not satisfactory to me. I am thus looking for other solutions.
(I know that the Latin locution obiit is used in some countries on parish registers. Could it be used here?)
