Essex Record Office Parish Registers lookup
« on: Monday 06 July 20 20:25 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

I am looking for the baptism of Dorothy Olive Trent, who was baptised St James, Forest Gate on 1 October 1897. I have seen a transcription of the record on Ancestry, and I think I have found the correct page on the Essex Archives parish records: https://www.essexarchivesonline.co.uk/Result_Details.aspx?ID=51877 (Page 42, Reference: D/P 596/1/4). However the site is subscription only, and unfortunately it's the only record they have that I'm looking for. Is there anyone who might be kind enough to send a copy of the baptism register image?

Many thanks  :)

Are you looking for a particular detail on the record as a tree on Ancestry has her full birth details etc plus parentage

She was 110yrs old when she died - birth 23.7.1897 death shown as 7.12. 2007 British Columbia - married name Hodgson

I am just looking for the baptism image so that I can confirm her date of birth (and they're usually more affordable than birth certificates), but yes that is the correct person - she did indeed pass away aged 110!

leads to image.  Cost to view is 2.99

Why not splash out?

Transcribed date of birth is 23 July
