Welcome to Rootschat

Are you trying to obtain a copy of his birth certificate?  What was his full birthdate?

Incredible story

The Common Room / Re: 1873 Funeral

Can’t comment on 1873 but when my friends father died in Liverpool in 1976 no women were allowed at his funeral - including his widow and only daughter.

I never did find out the reason but it was nothing to do with any family rift as they were very happily married

Hi Chrissy

Rootschat has a “no living persons” policy so any details cannot be published here.  If you know her siblings name and age you can check for a birth registration to establish her mothers maiden name.

Using that info you can search for other Smith births with the same maiden name to find the correct spelling of the person you are looking for

You have a duplicate post here with replies you have not yet acknowledged

As suggested - there are living children of the marriage.  Buying a copy of the marriage cert will give her fathers name

What is your connection to her as you do not appear to know her middle name which is shown on her probate entry found here

London and Middlesex / Re: What became of Martha Goddard?

Strangely - there is an 1861 entry for a Martha Goddard b Ponders End 1770

The 1861 Martha Goddard was born 1795 and was living with son John born 1833.  John's birth year fits the 1851 entry which had a daughter Cecelia so I have doubts this is the right Martha

Charles was born 1877 per death reg and the Ethel Stewart who died 1964 was born 1897.  Was there a 20yr age difference between them?

There is the possibility she is buried with her husband but you would need to contact St Johns to confirm that.  Given her date of death she must have been buried early January 1965

Her husbands death was also registered in the Leeds RD so there is a good chance she remained in the same locality
