Tyrone / Re: No First MInister for Ireland at the moment

That should read, of course, no First Minister for Northern Ireland? ;D

The Republic of Ireland still has a functioning Government, including President and Taoiseach.

If you look at an actual Death Certificate rather than Ancestry's attempt at simplification, you will see that (before 1969) it includes an "Age at Death".
Nothing at all about Birth Date ;D

Ancestry's "about 1863" is an attempt to provide an approximate year of birth.

But it still depends on who provided the information! ::)

Until 1983, GRO Reference Numbers consisted of:
Year, Quarter, RD, Volume and Page.

From 1984 to 1992:
DOR, Volume and Page.

From 1993:
District No, Reg. No, Entry No and DOR

Armed Forces / Re: J Watt British WW1 medal

W.O. CL.2 = Warrant Officer Class 2.
Bord. R. = Border Regiment

J. Watt is the soldier's name.

There should be his Regimental Service Number, but it appears you only have the last digit - 4.

Leicestershire Lookup Requests / Re: Chares Walter Wilson

I am left wondering if Charles Lyon (b 1831, Sheffield) was a Royal Marine, rather than simply a soldier?

A Marine would ft better in the places he was at! Falmouth, Portsmouth, Hull?

Sorry! I should have explained better! :-[

I also, when I get home, rename each file saved so that the title is relevant (to me!)
E.G. Garrad Census 1871 IOM
or    Kevin Garrad Baptism 1870

and so forth ;D

I also take notes at the same time; so I never forget what is what.

Sometimes I remember to take a USB stick! ;D

Other times I make use of cloud storage, available free with my email supplier (GMX).
Copy stuff to Cloud Storage in a new folder, which I can then access at home.
