The Common Room / Re: Delay between death and will
« on: Friday 18 January 19 16:00 GMT (UK)  »
  My husband and I named 2 of our children as executors.

So did my gran,but her only child,my dad, died when he was just 46 in 1970,and she went on for a further 18 years. 8)

So her will had to be changed and we chose solicitors again for that very reason.

When we made our wills,the solicitor advised us against naming a particular person as an executor incase they died before us. We we told to name the solicitors or one of their partners then there would be no delay in carrying our our wishes( unless the company went broke of course  ;D)

So maybe an executor died before the deceased person and they spent a long time trying to find who else qualified to fulfil the role?

Many thanks everyone for answering and J R for your recent post.
Has anyone similar info. for other Cemeteries in the U.K please?.
Regards JUST J.

Google them  ;)

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: 1939 register

Those two dates are 3/1 and 1/3. Don't know why they would both be there, rather than one crossed out (i.e. if this was a corrected entry).

It's funny that the dates have been reversed,as the Americans do,1st March (they would put 3/1)

If parents later marry then they SHOULD re register any children born to that relationship.

Here's the relevant form.

Hi Lynne

A lot of coroners reports are found in the local newspapers.
I recently had to look one up in the Harrow Observer for an Aussie friend,whose aunt died in 1956.

I think I've come across you on Facebook,and if I'm right your family ran Tann and Archers?

Pretty sure the local authority should still hold the records for the crematorium.

In my own case they have no record of my grandparents which is really odd (especially as my dad remembers going to the funeral) but I know given the date its worth considering.

My 2nd cousin who lives in NZ spent years trying to find 3 graves for her family in the mid 1950's.
They died in Wembley. I finally rang the local crematorium and found all 3 there.
And yet the local council had not been able to find them each time she'd emailed.

Have you tried crematoriums,as by the mid 1950's cremations were becoming more and more popular.

The Common Room / Re: Cost of certificates from the GRO

Around 30+ years ago,our holidays used to be based around the areas that I needed for my family history research. My hubby and I would often be seen tramping round graveyards (after visiting record offices) in Ashford,Staffs,Macclesfield,Taunton,North West London and Middlesex,all as Guy says very expensive compared to what is online today.
