If you gave a bit more information people may be able to help more.

Different countries have different records (and information from those records). The information also depends on the date.

But, (if the person died in England in the last 100 years or so), I would start by finding the death registration (try This should give you an age which will give you a starting point to find a birth registration if the person was male. If female try looking for a maiden name on the birth registration of one of their children and then use the age to try to find the birth.

Hope that gives you a starting point.

It looks like 84 to me.

2 lines further down on the original image is another Beatrice Robertshaw. I wonder if someone mixed the two up when adding a note. Do you know anything about the second one?

Family History Beginners Board / Birth and Death records pre civil registration
« on: Wednesday 22 August 18 06:17 BST (UK)  »

This is pre Q3 1837.

I'm wondering if anyone has come across any records of birth (other than date in baptism records) or death in their searches.

I know there was no requirement to register before 1837, but I'm curious if any churches or workhouses etc issued any form of documentation for births or deaths (other than baptisms and burials).
