Could this be the death record for William Henry Bartlett?
BARTLETT, WILLIAM  HENRY      74      Order
GRO Reference: 1870  S Quarter in PANCRAS  Volume 01B  Page 54  Occasional Copy: A
**
What is an occasional copy?

Another tree had him as dying in South Africa in 1867, but i think they confused him with someone else.

Hi again Richard do you agree or disagree with the signature of Caroline in 1861/2 marriages?

I agree about the 1861 and 1862 marriages. I have enlarged them and they look similar with the bold C for Caroline and Caunter.

Hi again Richard please read through all the replies given to you, I agree the death of William Henry Bartlett in 1870, as Caroline is a Widower in 1871 she is with her married daughter in 1891 aged 93 in Pirbright, Surrey
Abel Hill occ Commercial Clerk Father Thomas Hill married Louisa Bartlett Father William Henry Hill occ Engineer, both of Acton Street, 25th December 1856 Parish Chapel, St Pancras

Abel Hill was a School Master on census returns b Derbyshire
From prevoius threads/experience, do not rely on authenticity of "Trees" on Ancestry!?

PS who is your direct ancestor in this family?

Thank you Keyboard.
  I agree that one should not rely solely on the authenticity of trees on Ancestry. In this case, with its many twists and turns, the records and dates given are mostly correct even if there's not much explanation of "the story."
  The Caunter family is related to my aunt by marriage. While looking again at this branch yesterday, I was baffled and challenged by the limited solid data on my tree.
  Thanks very much for your help. I saw the Abel Hill connection and am satisfied that we researched this branch as thoroughly as possible. I shall finish adding the data to my tree.

 :) All sorts of unanswered questions like who was Charles Edwin Barrett, and why did Caroline revert to her previous married name of Caunter when she married Edwin Hossack and then possibly revert to it once again at her death in Australia?
Interesting also the Matilda Bartlett 6 and Anne/Sarah Ann 3  Grandaughters with William & Caroline in 1861 RG09/108/4/12 as if I recall they show as children of Caroline in 1871?

Barrett / Bennett / Bartlett !  ::)
A complex family to be sure.
Because they are a little distant from my direct line, I shall limit myself to the Carolines (mother and daughter).
Thanks
