Kings Norton birth and death please
« on: Sunday 29 March 20 19:49 BST (UK) »
I`m interested in the birth of Alfred Thomas Boardman Jan-Mar 1889 Kings Norton, and his death aged 1 Apr-Jun 1890
It is possible he was a child of my ancestor Alfred Thomas Boardman who had links to Birmingham but was living in Stourport shortly before and after these dates.  If it is my man, the mother`s name should be Elizabeth Ann

Many thanks

Did you check on mother's maiden name to rule him in/out as a candidate member of the family?

His parents were Alfred Thomas Boardman (1857/8 - 1922) and Elizabeth Ann Cook (1858 - 1926). He had siblings Henry Sidney Victor (1887 - 1893), Jessie Frances (1888 - 1972) and Alfred Donald (1892 - 1976). The parents were married at Lower Mitton, Kidderminster, om 1 Mar 1887.

I haven`t been able to access any information online which shows the mother`s maiden name.  If it is my ancestor her maiden name was Jones.

Keith - can I ask where your information came from?  This is definitely my family but my grandmother Jessie Frances was born in August 1888, which would mean that if Alfred Thomas was her younger brother he would have been born at least 2 months premature

Thanks

thanks very much Rosie.  That definitely rules him out then.  I had my doubts anyway but someone on Ancestry had entered this information on their family tree.
I have only just come back to family research after a long break and thought the GRO sight was just where you went to order certificates

ps I love your dog

They changed the GRO site a little while ago. 

It also gives ages of death for entries prior to when they start showing on freebmd's index in the mid 1860's.  You can also purchase PDF's of some birth and death certificates for around 7, they are just like the paper certificate but are not mounted on the certificate form.

When looking at GRO for ages on death I would be wary if it is a child you are looking for. I have several times ruled out children due to the age only to discover it had been transcribed wrongly. For instance if a child had died at 6 months old the register showed 6 years.
