Bedfordshire / Hit a wall!
« on: Thursday 26 February 09 18:49 GMT (UK)  »
 ??? Don't know what to do now. My grandparents marriage certificate tells me that my grandmothers father was called George Edward Hodge (deceased). However on her birth certificate no father is mentioned at all. Mothers name is Mary Hodge formerly Dodd.

Does this suggest that perhaps she was married before she had my grandmother and that perhaps her husband was not the father. My grandmother was born Doris Mary Hodge b. 1917 in Luton. Only marriage between a Mary Dodd and any Hodge  was in 1903 between a Mary Hephzibah Dodd and a Samuel James Hodge, he however died in 1915.

My dad says he vaguely remembers an aunt Ivy and Dora who were his mothers half sisters (all sharing the same father Hodge?).

I am still new to all this. Don't know where to look now.  :'(

Any help gratefully received.

The Common Room / Incorrect entry on birth index?
« on: Sunday 15 February 09 09:38 GMT (UK)  »
Is it possible for the entry on the birth index to be wrong. Trying to trace birth of my grandfather. The only Donald Eiles I can find for June 1919 in London (or anywhere for that matter) he is listed as Donald E Eiles. I was always told his middle name was Norman (passed to my father). The death entry shows it as Donald Norman Eiles.  ???

The Common Room / Tracing a burial

How do I find out for certain if someone has been buried where I have been told they are.  I looked in the Churchyard (it didn't take long), graves are obviously not marked.

Bedfordshire Lookup Requests / Caddington Burials - EILES
« on: Sunday 15 February 09 08:23 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, trying to find out if 2 people are actually buried in All Saints Churchyard in Caddington. I was told by my father that my great grandparents were buried there. I looked, graves are not marked.

Any help would be appreciated.  Henry James Eiles d. 1943 aged 68 years. Minnie Lucy Eiles d. 1946 aged 69.  Just need confirmation that these people are buried there (then I know for certain that they are my great grandparents.

Many thanks,
