« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 10:25 BST (UK) »
Can someone help me with a date of birth I know it was September 1921 his name was James Fitzgerald but I need the correct date to be able to get a certificate.
He was born in West Bromwich and his mother was Johanna Fitzgerald.
                           

                             thank you

Hi
He was registered in West Brom JAS 1921 under James F Fitzgerald.
There is a death in Birmingham 1987 for a James Francis Fitzgerald born 29th May 1921 so possibly registered next quarter.
Does that ring a bell?
What certificate are you sending for, not all require a date of birth.

James was killed WW2 in France he married Nellie Cooke Dec Q 1939.

I think this is why the birth date is required for the death certificate.

He married in Shrewsbury

Sorry, wrong James,
Someone might correct me but I don t think you would need his dob for a death certificate, I thought name, year volume and page was enough.
GRO War Deaths Army
James Fitzgerald 1943557 Royal Engineers

Year 1944
Volume 10
Page  125
Like I say, I might be wrong about dob needed.
