I have found that the staff are very helpful in the GRO by post and phone; I have only once walked into the Roscommon office!

Once I could not locate a death record and attached a copy of the newspaper obituary to my application and received the certificate (the surname spelling was different to any I expected)

As long as the request is not completely vague but has either a specific date or reference i.e. Year; District; Quarter (if applicable); Volume and Page they will endeavour to find the record

Also I dislike having to put too much detail re Credit Cards on paper by fax or post - I have always added "please telephone for full details" which they have done so without delay

They could however invest a small amount of time in revamping the forms and online systems

I am currently researching death and marriages records for four female Irish ancestors.

I have a name, location and year of birth for each of them and some of them never married. However I do not know what happened to them after 1958.

Also, for marriages, I do not know the name of the 2nd party, is it possible to find marriages for someone if you have their parents names? The father would have been mentioned on the certificate

thanks
