What is now even more confusing is that I have the certificates on my laptop and I've shown one of them but it won't let me download any other photos of them. Is that against the rules? Can I screenshot part of the certificates? I got all the certificates but now can't find them online. Impossible! Sorry everyone. I'm not too much help

Maybe you could type up the full details of the 1917 death?
Then we might be able to find it.

This is very, very confusing -- apologies if this has already been mentioned, but have we seen the possible birth of the Bridget on the 'coincidence' 1911 census;

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1905/01778/1698936.pdf

The father was a Patrick Driscoll, Tinsmith --- and the mother a Kate Dillon -- maybe that particular William and Mary on the 1911 census had taken this child in if something had happened to her parents.
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

Thatís not the same Bridget. Here she is with her parents Patrick and Kate.
The residence is Clonakilty.

I'm very confused but wonder if Mary was in the workhouse?
