I chose FindMyPast as that apparently has a lot of information.

Sadly no, but I did get a good amount of money which I put towards purchasing numerous certificates.

That is a shame.  It is so much better to be able to look things up yourself rather than having to keep asking for look ups.  Still no doubt you will be able to visit the library now you have broken up.  ;D

Yes, I've also made a couple of enquiries to churches as well, and many of them have been helpful.
