Hopefully it may help someone one day and stop them buying the wrong certificate, we have all done it.  At least now the GRO indexes have mothers maiden names before 1911 which hopefully stops some errors.

Hi Rosie,

Thanks for the suggestion. I wouldn't have thought of it, but as you say, if more of us did, it would save some of those disappointments when it's the wrong one.

I noticed that you had quoted the maiden name and you say again here that the GRO now shows mothers maiden name. Where are you finding that? All the ones I've looked up don't? Are you looking somewhere different to me?

Thanks

Andrea

Hi Andrea

It is the website for the GRO certificate ordering that now has this information.
It also has ages at death on earlier records.  You have to register but it is free.
https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp

It is a bit of a pain to use as you can only search over =/-  2years and have to select sex but has been brilliant at finding those lost children so many of us have.  I tend to search on freebmd then check on the GRO if I am looking over a large time span.  Some childrens ages under 12 on the death registers do not indicate whether it is weeks/months or years though so beware.

Many thanks Rosie,

I have even been on the GRO site to order a couple of certs this week and didn't realise that!

This site is already proving extremely helpful and I only discovered at the weekend!
