Hi,
Sorry for the delay. Technical hitches.
Hopefully you can read the attached file with Robert's parents names. The entry is a bit hard to read but It does look a bit like Ferguson. What do you think?
Many Thanks
B

Thank You.

Do you think the person who registered the death got it wrong or perhaps she was officially Mary but was know as Janet or it was in fact a different person.

Regards
B

As I said informants on Death Certs sometimes got it wrong.
Whos was the informant on his Death Cert?

I have a Cert from NZ that has John Shaws Mother as Hannah Cooper. She was actually Hannah Neild.
His Fathers Occp was a Cooper!

Hi,

Yeah as you say only as good a the informant. In this case his son Walter registered the death but maybe he never knew his grandparents. Also I think Robert has a sister called Jean so maybe he got confused.
Thanks again
