I would go with Joseph Entwistle. The Huddersfield Chronicle on September 16, 1854 & March 17, 1855 mentions a Joseph Entwistle who was the supplier of coffins to the Huddersfield board of guardians so it would seem very likely that his coffins would have been used in the new cemetery.

I can find mention of the France family living in Marsh during the 16th century.I wonder if Hambe was the name of a farm house?
Have you found any wills for the family? Any other names involved with the family?

Hemsworth stopped being part of Pontefract district in 1850. Hemsworth was it's own district from 1850 to 1974.

No registration for an Elsie Shaw in Hemsworth district in the Dec 1907 qtr but there was an Alice Ivy Shaw. Could Elsie be Alice?

The only death in Hemsworth for a Thomas Shaw 1907 to 1930 was Mar 1917 but he was aged 64.

Yes you can buy just the power connector or jack as it is often called. However they come in different sizes so you may need to visit a shop such as Maplins, show them the power supply and ask them to give you the same size connector. You would need to be sure that you connected the wires the correct way though since the outer part of the connector is negative and the inner is positive.

If you are seeking a new supply you need to know the output voltage and the current, this should be written on the power supply.

I wouldn't trust a second hand supply, they don't age well at all. Ebay and Amazon are full of cheap chinese items, many of dubious quality. Maplin or any computer shop should be able to provide you with a new one but you would be safer to visit a shop to show them the old one so that you get the correct rating and connector size.

Have you tried emailing HP support with your query? I would have thought that they could provide you with a suitable replacement even if your laptop is no longer in production, the latest models may well use exactly the same supply or at least a compatible one.

Well copy/paste solves the first problem but not if the title is too long, it simply doesn't paste anything.

Whilst using a short name linking to another Excel document would work, it doesn't seem practical if other people are going to want to see my tree, they won't have the Excel document.

I have settled for shortening the name to one word and putting the full title in as a footnote.

I keep attempting to add sources to FTM but I find the whole process so difficult that I usually get fed up quite quickly and give up.
Firstly when typing in long titles I have to keep leaving the program to look at the title again to remind myself what the next line is, then when I get back to start typing again I get the annoying "are these two sources the same or are you changing the spelling" Grrr.

Secondly I don't see any means of entering a title which is longer than the length of the window. If I shorten the title of the book then it won't make sense to me or anybody else so what good will it be to try?

Has anybody got any solutions to these problems?
