Death of Jeremiah Kidd, 1844?
« on: Friday 17 May 19 11:29 BST (UK) »
I have this from FreeBMD

Deaths Mar 1844
KIDD    Jeremiah        Thetford    13   271

I would very much like to find it in the GRO Death index, to get his age-at-death.

But I can't find it.

The obvious "wide open" search for Phonetically similar to "Kidd", Male, 1844Ī2, "Thetford" gives no results.

Can anyone help?

Well done Ciderdrinker - what search did you do for Thidd to come up? I hate the inflexibility of the GRO search function.

I tried
A* in the surname box  then B* etc for Thetford until it came up.
I agree with you the search form is awful

To be clear, you found him by searching Jeremiah T* in Thetford R.D ?
I just tried that and it didnít work.
What am I doing wrong?

You have to choose 'Phonetically similar variations' in the surname field.

Has it always supported wildcards, or is this a feature that was quietly added?

Very valuable, in either case <makes note>
