Oh my, the Rootschatters have certainly provided you with plenty of information now Kathy.  You should be able to move further on with all this.   :)

Hhmm, so they left London in 1912.  In theory it should be possible to locate the family in the 1901 census and earlier.  The 1911 census information is for England and Wales only so if they weren't there in 1911 won't be able to locate them.

Could you provide the names of his parents and sibling(s), their birth places if known and birth years?What was his father's occupation?  What information was on the passenger list?

I am assuming that your father has died?  If so do you have his death certificate and what does it say?
 
Did your genealogist look for any wills?

Census and Resource Discussion / Re: 1939 Census National Register - codes info please

The only way you would know if it was cancer is to obtain the death certificate.  You could spend a lot of time trying to guess what all the notations mean.

The NHS also indicated any name changes when a woman married as well as the marriage date.

The majority of the NHS information is on the right hand side of the register which is the bit that has not been transcribed and not visible.  Due to lack of space some of this information ended up on the left hand side which is what we can see.

The general opinion is that anything written in red, blue or green ink was the work of NHS employees.

The 1939 register was used by the NHS as a means of recording information about people and giving everyone reference numbers.  Probably a rather more basic number than is used today.

The likelihood of finding out what all these notations mean is somewhat remote. They obviously mean something to the NHS but not to us unfortunately.  ::)

Some of the notations are dates when a woman married so can be useful from that point of view.

Hi Kathy

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

One wonders why the Home Affairs dept. are querying his place of birth.  Did you provide that piece of information yourself when applying for his birth cert?

The dept. presumably has to make sure they are sending you the correct certificate.  Is his name a common one?

Are you positive about where he was born?

I wonder if she was buried in the same district in which her death was recorded, i.e. Townhead, burgh of Glasgow.

Write to the South Lanarkshire bereavement office first and see what they say.  Make sure you give them all the details that you have about her death.  Hopefully they will either find a burial record or tell you where you can look.

Good luck.  :)

You appear to have an exact date of death.  Does that mean you have her death certificate?  If so where does it say she died and is there an address of any kind mentioned?  Do you know who her parents were?

What information do you have on Elizabeth and her family?
