 Hi Im new to Roots Chat although not new to family history research but I'm stuck. Im looking for a death record for my Great grandfather George Muir Brown who died at his daughter Elizabeth McMillan's home in Aintree or manchester in or around 1947ish. Any ideas where I can start?

FreeBMD won't have transcribed that recently; and would not have his middle name (just initial) anyway.

Does LAncashireBmd have anything? You'll need his birth year to help pin anything down though.

Does that sound possible?

definitely - how on earth did you manage that. I obviously have a lot still to learn and think this is the place to do that.
Next question - how do I go about getting a copy of his death certificate to confirm the details?

I found the death on the complete GRO index - it's available in the UK in county record offices as well as some larger libraries, and online at one or two subscription sites.  It's not as easy to search as Free BMD, because you have to check each quarter, but as you knew the rough date, it didn't take too long! 

You can order the cert online from http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/ - it costs 7.
