The Common Room / Re: Do UKBMD birth dates backdate?
« on: Monday 07 December 20 16:26 GMT (UK)  »

What does it actually say on the shropshire site? Freebmd records are taken from the GRO index, and they are listed as when the birth is registered. The birth certificate itself would have the date of birth and the date the birth was registered.

Actually after looking at the site, are you sure the 1882 one is yours? What was her mothers maiden name? The 1882 one has maiden name Lloyd and I think the 1883 one you are referring to has maiden name Davies

Unfortunately the info on grace's refers to the company at Dorchester, but doesn't say anything about the Depots around the country

The company is Eddison Steam Rolling Company of Dorchester, but I'm looking for the address of a depot they had in Leicester between 1935 and 1947

Hi all

Has anybody tried searching for a company rather than a person in the directories on ancestry or FindMyPast?
