Thank you Deirdre784 yes I have found the death now.

I'm glad it is just not me that can't find the birth.

HI Mazi

Thank you for trying

But I was hoping to be able to order the PDF copy not the more expensive copy.

Just posted a reply but it's disappeared  ::)

Rather than searching the GRO online index, go through the old GRO route of 'place an order' entering the details as you know them. It gives you the option of a pdf. If there is a problem, they can always come back to you but hopefully there is a reason why we can't find it (though I've tried various spellings etc).

If you  log into the GRO website and click the Search The GRO Indexes option, you can enter the details (name, year, district) to find the entry you need  Using spelling variations is as good idea, because not all transcript sites spell entries the same!  On the right of the entry are options to order cert or pdf.  If you click on the option you want, the order form will autofill the data needed.

Hope this helps

I tried this (Ann Luffman d1860 Age 0 Spilsby) She is on the local record, but not on the national. The entry has been transcribed by Free BMD

I ticked the box for ordering a pdf.

It’s not likely to be connected but if you look at the image that freebmd was transcribed from the district is unclear
