By the way, a link to Ancestry is only useful to those who have a subscription - the reference is better really (HO 107/2075/497/47)

That's right, the correct reference for your person is HO107; Piece: 2175; Folio: 497; Page: 47, which can be shortened to HO107/2175/497/47. The GSU Roll is of no relevance to the reference as a finding aid and can be omitted.

Sometimes the references given can be incorrect and I always try to check them with the original image.
