Probably not relevant but I cannot see a likely candidate on the free index for 1911

Thank you all for your help
I have sent off an order as per Mazi
I forgot that on the order form you have a choice, I was thinking you could only order a PDF on the search page.
Thank you all again

Sorry, I should have noticed the death.

I had a similar problem,  an alteration to the cert. had been made a few days after the registration,
Freebmd had indexed the birth under the altered details but the gro would not supply a certificate as the  “ original details do not match”
At least they did not charge me,  I phoned the local register office who explained, and sold me a certificate.

Just a small point,if the volume is 8d don't you have to order it as 08d ?

I think that the GRO always omit the leading zero?
Leastwise, they know that 08d is the same thing as 8d ;D

This is really strange.  The reference given on freebmd for Roland Corbett - Manchester 1910 - is vol 8d page 211.

I have tried to find my relative Fanny Wickens - Isle of Wight 1846, given on freebmd as vol 8 page 212, which is what it says on the original scan.  Nothing comes back on GRO.  I raised this as a missing entry with GRO and the response was "Investigated - No Amendment Required. Indexed Data is Correct".

It lets me put all the data in the GRO order form, but would GRO later reject the order if they couldn't find the certificate when they try to process it?

Just a thought, RW1, are you offering TOO MUCH information to GRO?  If you just give the information from the image of the GRO Index, then I'm sure they will find the entry.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

How strange - just looked at FreeBMD, and the original page scan.  Fanny definitely Isle of Wight, VIII, 212.  And looked at the new GRO facility - nothing for Fanny Wickens in 1846, anywhere.
