Hi Guy,
Thank you for taking time to reply. 
I was actually looking at birth, marriage and death records. The particular people really didn't matter, I just could not see where on the sites to find the link to the original images.

The Layout has changed such a lot.
 I eventually found on one, F.M.P,  that the types of records have been broken down into separate record sets under Life Events and from there, once the transcript comes up, there is this button up above all of that on the left which takes one to the image.

It says "view original image" or some such wording.  There was one that also. strangely, had a link right beside the transcription button like it used to be: but only the one. on the first results page.

So you have to be specific, under Life Events, choose the type of records and see what you get. Then find this button for the image.  For this site, I haven't tried others yet.

It was good that I did find these as there was more information about the couple getting married than was on the transcript.  I gather from this that both were under age and for some reason had guardians.   This is because the Guardians had given consent to the marriage and that fact was

This is the reason behind my wishing to find a way to the images. 

I hope this helps someone like Guy said it might.     

Cheers Essnell.

Thank you Jebber,
 and thank you everyone. 

I know that these images are available and I have been able to find them without any problems in the past.   

As I said in my last post I would try again and I have finally found out how to get them:  on at least one search site. 

It is some time since I did this, as my last 12 months have been occupied with another research project. In the interim it looks like the sites have all been updated. Now I am stumbling through finding everything. 

It's now, I believe OK.  Just have to adjust to the new Page Layouts etc. 

Thank you for offering to help search but I really do not need that this time. I shall ask if I do, definitely.

Thanks again..I think I'll be fine now.

Hi Guy and Mckha489,

Thank you to you both for the answers.    I am using two or three of the paid sites for this and all are giving me the same result. Just a transcription of the record. 

Once one got an image you could view and this is really invaluable it often means one can see much more than what is on the transcription.    I have those transcriptions but I don't trust them completely.

So in order to get to  images of the original parish records, the ones hand written by the priests and clergy, what do I now need to do.  Contact the relevant parish?  or the Local Family History Group. 

  I just tried one of the sites where the records have been broken up into smaller distinct sections and I followed that for the 1795 one and got two copies of the same stuff...parish baptism transcriptions.

I'll try Parish Registers, next. 
Being several thousand miles distant I cannot just run to the nearest Office.

Hi Everyone,

I am wondering... Once upon a time:    I was able to get copies of parish registers when searching pre 1837 records.   

 I have been retracing some of my research and I am looking for more of these and I am not finding them. All I get is a type of transcript.  eg:  England Select ... whatever  or the useless index lists.  there are just a few that have the banns etc type of result... unfortunately not the ones I need.     

Even these are hard to find.   So to get an image of a parish register record  now, is it now essential to contact the relevant parish for this and have it sent etc. 

I am looking for a birth in 1796 and a marriage in 1816  as an example.   

I am getting old and stupid or has something changed???

Hi Kay,
Thank you. I have looked at that thread.   

So, on that information there should possibly be another certificate.  That I cannot find.
 Before I buy the Cert I shall try to find his wife's death.  It might help with place and date.

If i get anything concrete as to meaning . It shall be added here.

Kind regards

Hi Everyone,

I have just been on FreeBMD and GRO looking for a possible death. 
So I have this record :

Joe Bloggs,   June Quarter   age xx yrs, year xxxx, vol no and page,    then     "Occasional Copy A"

What does this "Occasional Copy A" imply on the GRO search.

 I have not come across this before has anyone else? I was about to order this particular cert but I would like to know the implications of this additional info before doing so.

Hi Jebber,
Thankyou for being so kind and thoughtful as is everyone else.  This time I actually don't need to have the chasing done. I would have asked if it was required and I have had heaps of amazing help from Rootschatters in the past. 

I have the birth info and marriage info and on the PDF is the spouse's name so I will be able to connect them together. Added to that the address matches the 1939 register.  So all good.

So ,yes, no parents on Death Certs from England.

  Sloe Gin.  Well that's what I was thinking about the local RO's .  I still might give it a go. you never know what night turn up. 

Cheers Essnell

HI Everyone,
Thank you all for taking time to explain the GRO Death Cert info. 

I will have to find another way to identify a dead persons parentage.   

Cheers All and many thanks.

Thank you Jebber,
I shall take a look.

Maybe it might be useful to also see what the relevant Local Registry Office has.
 The documents look just like someone had type in the information from some sort of source document.
Thank you again
