World War One / 11 WYR for BumbleB
« on: Thursday 08 December 16 11:03 GMT (UK)  »
Apologies if I'm telling you something you already know.
11 Batt. was part of 69 Bde. 23 Div.
Their Operational Orders for the 7th. Oct. are below.
The map shows their start point at & around Destramont farm.
The 11th. were to form the 2nd. wave 20 mins. after zero hour.
As they advanced the area came under heavy shelling but they did achieve their objective but with heavy losses, so much so that the 11th. & 2 other Batt's. were formed into a composite in order to achieve their next objective which was to take the South side of Le Sars which they also achieved.
The 68 Bde. were on their right flank & took the North side.

This has probably been asked before but does anyone know if you can access the 1939 register with a 1 month sub.
I'm getting conflicting answers from FindMyPast.

Family History Beginners Board / Who is Phyllis May Cedone Lee ?
« on: Tuesday 21 June 16 15:23 BST (UK)  »
The above lady married in 1913 B'ham to William Arkinstall & states she's a 21 yo spinster & lady dentist. (no Lee witnesses)
Her father is listed as Alfred Lee deceased a stone mason.
Her death cert. gives a birth of Oct. 1st. 1891.
On the Electoral Rolls she always gives her name as Phyllis M C Arkinstall.
Can't find her anywhere on planet earth.
Where did she come from ?
She's the Grandmother of a friend of mine.

Technical Help / connection problem

Does anyone understand what's happening here.
Opening webpages seems OK it's when I go to a different page or back again I get the " page can't be displayed" page. Running diagnostics gives the below message.
This happens on here & with other sites. I'm also getting it on the laptop.
both are Win7 using IE latest version.
Doesn't happen all the time but enough to make life difficult.
When I close the diagnostic page the page I'm trying to get appears.
Very odd.

Family History Beginners Board / bishops Transcripts
« on: Friday 11 July 14 12:28 BST (UK)  »
I have to say that BT's are a bit of a mystery to me but I have some BMD's from the Bridgnorth BT's 1630's-40's that don't appear in the Bridgnorth PR's.
Believing that the Transcripts were taken from the Parish Registers I can't understand why they're not there.
Is there anyone with more knowledge of these things that can shed some light ?
