f all you want is to browse the internet then buy an iPad, they just work and setting up email like Gmail is a simple task

Far more expensive than a Chromebook though. I don't have a Chromebook, but people I know who do speak very highly of them. If it's only 3 months old contact the people you bought it from.

Have you checked to see if there are any updates?

I ordered a pdf death certificate late on Sunday 6th and it said it would be ready on the 11th. I received it just before midnight on the 9th, so it does look as if things are getting back to normal.

Could the fact the mother is standing next to the groom indicate that she's related to him rather than the bride?

I think as well one thing to bear in mind with a B&B is that you will have to find somewhere to eat for an evening meal. Most places need to be booked in advance.

Thank you Kay99 and Girl Guide!

Anthony's parents were David G Bunting and Clarice M Smith married in 1931 - being very new to all of this I am not clear what the two marriages have to do with the two birth entries - Girl Guide please could you explain?

Many thanks for your help.

I think what Girl Guide is pointing out is that there were two families where a Bunting married a Smith - one in Ashbourne and one in Wandsworth. By co-incidence it looks as if they both had boys called Anthony G born the same time.

Private baptisms at home usually took place because a child wasn't expected to survive, it was entered with Private next to it. If they survived they were often welcomed into the church with another service and this may also have been recorded in the Parish records. It looks as if in this case, neither was done. Perhaps this came to light when one of the sons wanted to get married.

I think that is why so many people don't stick to the rules, they donít intentionally break them, they just donít know what they are!

Two separate households are allowed to mix indoors or in the garden of a home. This means you can have people in your garden, as long as they are from just one other household at a time. This could be awkward if you have several adult children with families!
