South Africa / Re: Death Of A Former Durban United Footballer
« on: Monday 17 June 19 19:17 BST (UK)  »



Not related to your actual search but I would be grateful for a link to the Preston North End club historian which I tried to find some time ago and gave up.  I am told that one of my husband's Nevitt relatives played for the club some considerable length of time ago and was trying to verify.

Regards, Pheno


Hi Pheno

If you message me with the name of the gentleman,  I am able to look up any player that has made first team appearances from 1888 onwards.

Kind regards

Lancashire / Volunteers Needed At The Lancashire Infantry Museum

The museum in Fulwood Barracks needs help in telling their story to their Saturday visitors. You don't have to have served in the military, just have an interest in history and enjoy meeting people - why not come and join them? They are a friendly bunch and you will find that guiding visitors around one of the best regimental museums in the country is a very satisfying and enjoyable experience.

Thanks Sandra, I've seen the UK press reports.  I was hoping someone in SA would have local reports, thanks once again

South Africa / Death Of A Former Durban United Footballer

Hi, I hope SKS can look in the recent press for the death of Kit Napier, a former Durban United player.

It looks like Kip passed away at home in SA either on 31st March or 1st April,  I would like to know which date and where exactly.

The information is to be used by Preston North End club historian to keep his files upto date

Thank you

Wow, the marriage meant he emigrated to Canada a lot earlier than we thought.

Sandra, many thanks for your help, it is very much appreciated.

Would you be able to find a death record for Miles

Canada / Footballer Miles Barton DENT
« on: Wednesday 06 March 19 11:09 GMT (UK)  »
I hope some kind soul can help me, I have been tasked by my football club to find out what happened to one of our former players.  Miles Barton DENT was born in Preston, Lancashire in 1860.  He apparently emigrated to Canada about 1891, I can't find a marriage for him in England, did he marry in Canada?  On the 1881 census, Miles'occupation was joiner

Any information will be gratefully received

Kind regards

England / Re: Registry Office Marriage Record
« on: Thursday 10 May 18 21:28 BST (UK)  »
Register office marriages are, as far as I am aware, not available from any Record Office.  You will have to purchase the certificate.

Many thanks, I thought that was the case

Kind regards

England / Registry Office Marriage Record

Hi

Do local record offices hold the marriage records for the counties registry offices?  Or do you always have to purchase the certificate?

Thank you
