It is strange Rosie and I'm not convinced its either of those names.   ::)
If Jeanette was born November 1870 as per death cert then these were the births for that  quarter  ??? :-

Buckingham Jeanette Edith   -    Depwade  4b 210  (its not this one - probate in UK 1964 - married name Churchyard)
Cannons  Jeanette St Clair  -    Wandsworth  1d 500  (buried 3 Feb 1872 - Norwood Cemetery, Norwood Road, Lambeth)
Hardaway  Jeanette Alice  -     Brentford  3a 47 (married William James Innes -  St John, Isleworth - 12 Dec 1891)
Lingham  Jeanette  -     Maidstone  2a 581   (couldn't see anything so far on this one)
Nuttall  Jeanette Blanche -      W. Ham  4a 34  (married William Butler - died 1933 UK) 
Smith  Jeanette     Shoreditch -   1c 103  (hmmm - couldn't be certain on this one so far)
Thompson  Jeanette     Keighley -  9a 199 (married Albert James Oakley - 1894 - Yorkshire.)

Nothing for Jeanette Richards/Richardson in that quarter  ???

Hi Tom,

Noticed your anc tree did not have the Canadian Attestation Papers for Herbert Bennett - they are in the process of being digitalised but you are lucky and the letter "B" is completed.
If you use the link below - you will then see a pdf option to the right - click on that - it takes a while to down load but it will give you the complete military file for Herbert. Quite interesting documentation to have.

Chempat - In your reply 14 - it was copy and paste entries - did you know copy and paste is not allowed on the site, it has to be your own transcription.  Just in case you post death record information on USA boards, the moderator does not like social security numbers been given in posts. Noticed you had only been a member since Oct 2014 so you may have been unaware of this rule,   

Sandra

Your post at 18.28 today looks like a direct copy and paste, could you explain the difference?

Thank-you

Sorry - No that is not correct - it was transcribed as per the bmd entry - if I copy and paste I would get the other bits on the end - info etc...............
Just rechecked and some surname were in capitals - mine are not.

Not finding them on census or the birth records as you said Rosie. All 4 travelled together on that Canadian passenger List 25 February 1893 - age of Jeanette/Jessie could be varying - passenger list looked like 29 and then 27 alongside but death cert says born 1870 which would have made her 23 years  ???  Strange........................  :-\

I noticed on the immigration record there was someone else in that group but could not make out the name was wondering if it was the Aunt May McPherson who was with some of the family in later census's or was she related to the George Fisher
