Title: Swindon Baptism Records - TIDMARSH
Post by: mamor on Saturday 06 February 10 17:04 GMT (UK)
Hi, I have the birth certificate for (*)  I am wondering if the baptism record will show the name of his father, as the birth certificate does not.

Thank you in advance for any help that anyone is able to give me on this.

it looks like Aubrey was illegitimate -so I doubt father's name would be on his baptism record

Thanks for your reply.

We believe that his father died before they got married.  I know that in the 1800's the father wouldn't be mentioned at the baptism - but I didn't know if things would have changed by the 1920's?? 

I would still like to verify where and when the baptism took place, as we have a photo of the event.
