Not sure about those facts now  Rosie as I haven't needed to find out,  was about 1996 when I lost  some of my monies till they found out I was right, then they posted off the certificate, no problems at all, must admit they and also myself got it right each time since, it is worth a telephone call though

I am inclined to think if anyone does a decent days work and earns a reasonable living in hard times I commend them, my father was always partially blind till he was finally registered    blind when he was about 48 ish I think, he worked till he was 70 with only 2 years off after he was made redundant in 1958 from the United dairies, they mechanized and had no need for a groom, they sadly had to let him go after 6 weeks as there wasn't a suitable job for him, he had a glowing reference

Have unearthed some fascinating things which sometimes have given lots of people something to talk about and I always tell them if they are shocked that we cannot change history, we have to accept warts and all as they say


OK Martin, missed that one, perhaps a bit early !!!

My husbands aged aunts always said they were related to a much better side of the family with the same surname, not "working class",  2 Sirs, so having gone to Carlisle to research this wealthy side I discovered they were not related, so now the aged aunts don't ask and if I mention anything I just watch the glazed  look and then I switch off.

Mornington Cres, Maida Vale area?
Not far from where I was born in W10, not so far away but what is the significance of Mornington Cres

Well I think it is worth a telephone call to ONS, you don't want to lose any money, that happened to me years ago with my grandmother's death certificate, soon sorted

Good Luck

In my opinion it is good manners to ask first

I can't be 100% sure but I believe passenger lists only go up to 1960, someone else might now better than me

If you think he remarried is 1939 to early for you to double check then look for a death

Ross & Cromarty / Re: What can I hope to find on a christening record?
« on: Sunday 17 June 18 19:38 BST (UK)  »
In England Christening records normally give
date of christening
childs names
surname and Christian names of parents
father's occupation
and sometimes if we are lucky there is a birth date but not always,

You seem to have a lot of information already apart from his date of birth

Having seen Scottish marriage certs they give much more information, so, I assume they would give you all the details listed above at least, you might even get mother's maiden name

Happy Hunting

Sounds like you will have to splash out on a cert

Good luck
