I've updated the broken links.

Maybe contact the London Metropolitan Archives to see if they can offer further insights if the new links don't help.

Interesting HMCTS ask for proof of payment.

I raised that recently with them.

I've placed a couple of orders and you don't get one now, and as there is no VAT, they do not have to provide it.

The later entries after 1996 where you don't get to see calendar images were scanned and digitised as they were probated.

And a late addition to the thread in case it hasn't been mentioned:

Back in the day when the closure of the probate dept at Holborn was announced, it was mentioned then that as the pages of the calendars were being scanned and digitised, only the first 3 digits of the surnames on the page were indexed because that was how the pages in the huge books in the rooms there were indexed.

Hi Helen

I've moved your topic to the Glamorganshire board, you can't attach photos on the look-up request boards

Hi Michael

Welcome to Rootschat  ;D

Your topic was posted onto the end of another so I've split it away.

Maybe it will be seen by a few more people now.

So we don't duplicate what you already know, what sort of information are you looking for?

If you have their marriage certificate, what were the names of their fathers?

Have you found them in the censuses?

Hi James

Maureen (STANGERM) only posted once so doesn't have enough posts to be able to access the personal message system. She may see your message but not be able to reply.

As there haven't been any more posts on that topic, post a reply which should send her an email notification that you have posted. Her notifications are set to "instantly but only for the 1st reply", yours would be the first reply. Fingers crossed her email address hasn't changed since 2015 when she posted and 2016 when she was last here.

Hope this helps.


Information on a death cert is informant driven, who was the informant and maybe they made a mistake?

There should have been paperwork from the hospital to the registrars, maybe contact them and find out if this was possibly a mistake down to the wrong letter headed paper or form from the hospital.

The OP has been online since the replies were posted but has not answered the questions about his person of interest still being alive.

As a precaution the topic has been edited to remove the name but should confirmation be received that he has passed away, will be reinstated.
