Armed Forces / Army records
« on: Friday 16 July 21 16:45 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I know getting records are going to be delayed due to covid but I just wondered if they still cash the cheque straight away. It was only about 2 months ago I sent the forms but the cheque still hasn't been cashed. Is this normal? I didn't want to spend the money if they may take it in several months.

Thanks all

The workhouse definitely didn't send her there as the think she was in Chelmsford before arriving at the Workhouse. As Ruskie said maybe she worked there and became pregnant there.

I think I come up with 1 as when I blew the doc up it looked like an ink drip making it look like a 7 also number 1 employed servants. The main thing I'm trying to work out is who would of gave the information for the birth certificate, the mother or the workhouse.

The informant is the mother, but the address is different to the mother. She went into the workhouse 7 months before giving birth.

I have reloaded the doc, she was in the workhouse for 4 years from 1910 - 1914 so didn't have a home. So could it be somewhere she worked before the workhouse.

The Common Room / 1911 Birth certificate

Not sure if I'm posting in the right place but I have a birth certificate when my grt grandmother gave birth. She was in the workhouse at the time which is on the birth certificate as informant but then it says she was at 1 sinclair rd, Hammersmith under mother. I know the workhouse started to put a different address but they were no where near each other so I wondered why would that address be listed when she wasn't there.

Many thanks for any help, I have attached the birth certificate.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the pencil writing says. I think it starts To Stifford as that's where the child was sent. I just wondered what the rest said and if it held any clues.

I have managed to find a Mr and Mrs Sifton of 143 Whitechapel.
