Anthony G Bunting born 1932 Dec Qtr. There are two entries on the GRO; one typed with district of Ashbourne and the other handwritten at bottom of page with district of Wandsworth (please see attached screen shot). Family had connections with both Derbyshire and Wandsworth.

Is one entry a mistake or did parents try to register his birth twice - once in Derbyshire and once in Wandsworth?
Thank you!

I wonder if anyone can help - I am trying to find when my great great grandfather died.

William Bunting was born in 1863 in Codnor Derbyshire; he was the son of John Bunting and Elizabeth Bullock and lived at Waingroves Derbyshire.

He married Jane Gregory at the parish church Pentrich Derbyshire in Jan 1885 and the 1891 census lists them as living at Waingroves; at this time they had 1 daughter Christina Betsy Bunting. A second daughter Minnie Bunting was born in 1892 and a son David Gregory Bunting in 1893.

In 1893 William appeared at Heanor Petty Sessions for assaulting his wife.

The 1901 census lists Jane (his wife) as "head of house" and a widow. David's school record from 1900 list his father as "dead".  Subsequent marriage certificates for Minnie and David list their father as deceased although Chritina's wedding certificate doesn't.

I got a certificate for a William Bunting who died in 1897 in the neighboring county but the information on it shows that it is not "my" William Bunting!

Any advice as to the best way to establish when and where he died would be really helpful!

When reviewing civil marriage results on Ancestry clicking on a result brings up a new view with details of the selected record (please see attached screen shot of part of the view). There is a section "Records on page" which lists some names - please could someone clarify where these names are taken from - are they from the actual marriage certificate?

I am very new to family history research and even newer to RootsChat but already I have found the group and it's help to be brilliant!

I had often thought about tracing my family history but had never quite got round to it. About two months ago my sister and I received letters from Fraser and Fraser the heir hunters who were looking into the estate of a possible relative of ours. To cut a very long story short they have subsequently found a closer relative of the deceased but Fraser and Fraser’s original letter gave me the kick start to investigate my family and now I am total hooked! I have joined Ancestry and although my tree is only a sapling I it is gradually growing!

I would be very grateful if someone could try to decipher the word in brackets between "David" and "Big Yard"; the column is for the name of the parent of the child. It has me completely foxed!
