Ordering a GRO cert where there's two Jane Browns on the index page?
« on: Wednesday 28 December 16 13:17 GMT (UK) »
BROWN, JANE  45
GRO Reference: 1866  S Quarter in CARLISLE  Volume 10B  Page 277
BROWN, JANE  76
GRO Reference: 1866  S Quarter in CARLISLE  Volume 10B  Page 277

The index shows their ages but this appears to be removed when going to order one. Will GRO know which one I'm after? Will they contact me if they don't know? They were buried four days apart in the same churchyard.

Thanks

I think that when you order from the GRO there is a space to enter age at death.

You're right Groom, I've just seen that. The box for that isn't there when placing the order the index way. It's probably been carried over in the code but I'll go the old way to be safe.

Thanks :)
