might be able to tell me if there are still old dwellings in Angel Row.

The  area has been redeveloped, this birds eye view shows what may be original buildings on the north side of Angel Row https://binged.it/2op2R8R

 Angel Row may have been swallowed up in this development but Im by no means certain of that & will have to consult my detailed maps of Worcester to make sure


Just look at the map links I gave

Welcome to RootsChat

 If you get a certificate from the local register office it says "Certified to be a true copy of an entry in a register in my custody."
If the certificate is from the GRO then it is stated on the bottom that it is "Certified to be a true copy of an entry in the certified copy of a register of ........ in the Registration District of ......."
Or "... in the District above Mentioned"

"The place where the deaths occurred is called The Gutters (an area in Macclesfield around Goose Lane) , an unhealthy situation abounding with pigsties, slaughter houses and an accumulation of filth."

According to the 1851 Census it was in this area https://www.old-maps.co.uk/#/Map/391797/373759/13/100100
