Well found Millie, I didn't have any luck myself,nor can  I see any of them in 1911.

I see that Catherine states that one of her children had died by 1911.

I'm just looking in Ireland to see if they are there.

Thank you so much, I have found and ordered James and John's birth certs from the online GRO but struggling to find Julia's (I have been working off her marriage cert) do you have the Vol and page numbers please?

Yvonne do you know that you can get a PDF of births up to 1918 sent to your computer for just 7,rather than the full price of 11 for the actual cert in the post?

There's a Thomas too,unless I've missed Millie finding him?

I think he might have been the one who died.
Yes he died at 21 Emley Street aged 3 months on 10th Sept 1906.

Shows up in the Ford Cemetery Catholic burial registers.

Yes thank you x

Just recently discovered that, made my day! This can become quite an expensive "hobby" especially if you order the wrong persons certs as I did in the beginning. I'm getting better now  ;D

You can ask them to send a cert only if mum or dad is XXX

Mind you they can be quite pedantic about that,so don't give them too much info,especially if as yours the surname can be spelt differently on various different websites.

Note that Thomas's birth on the GRO site is spelt with an A. :o
