Trying to locate my gran
« on: Sunday 20 October 13 18:06 BST (UK) »
My gran Ellen Inglis who was born Ellen Lawlor in Glasgow, was said to be visiting her sister in Durham (I think nobody knows where she was) and she died and I believe was buried/cremated there around 1948.  She would have been 45 ish.  Her husband was Robert Inglis, her parents were Patrick and Elizabeth Lawlor.  Can anyone help??

Hi,

This appears to be the death record -

Ellen Inglis
Birth Date - abt 1902
Date of Registration - Jun 1948
Age at Death - 46
Registration District - Durham South eastern
Vol 1a Page 556

Her death cert would give details of where she died.

Thank you JJ.  That was quick - I have been searching for her for such a long time.  Where did you find her??

If you intend to get her death cert make sure you do it through the official GRO website.
http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

It will cost you just 9-25 from them.Costs loads more from other sites  ;D

Thank you!  I don't know that this is her.  Spoke to some relatives last night and nobody knows when she went to England or where she went.  I know that she was having children in the 1930's and am pretty sure she wasn't around in the 60's.  Shes not on the S/P website.... so maybe the went to England story is true!  Like looking for a needle in a haystack.

The info you gave us in your first posting lead JJen to come up with exactly the right person that fits all the criteria.So are you now saying that isn't her?

The name Ellen Inglis is very unusual and there aren't that many of them about.

Sorry yes!  The info I had from my relations was that she went to Corby, then Nottingham, then Newcastle and finally Durham, but no-one knows when she went or can say categorically where she went.  Like you say there arent that many Ellen Inglis's on the BMD website (thank you for that JJ didn't know it existed) it only came up with two possibilites one in Durham (1948) and one in Bedford (1960) both fit the birth year.   I will get the death certs from the GRO as you suggested and see if either is her.
