Thank you John. It is great to see the actual image and to have a copy for my files. You have contributed so much regarding this family.
I have had a reply regarding Weaste cemetery and they cannot add to what I can find online due to COVID complications but they did suggest a couple alternatives.

Is there any way to find out if a marriage has been annuled in 1906 or 1907 i.e. Ellen Ward who was only 16 when married to Robert Bernard Keen?

Hello again,
I have learned that there is no proof that Annie died in 1932. Perhaps she was still alive for 1939 registers. I don't know how to put in her date of birth, June 17, 1870, to see if she pops up. Can anyone help  with that? Thank you.

I did find the correct family in 1939. However, there are two blocked persons and I have no idea who is blocked. I also wrote to Salford Registrar so will see what happens.

I ordered the death certificate for Ann Johnston who died in 1939 in Salford, age 68. Right age to be Annie who was born 1870, right area. However, when I got the certificate, Ann was 78 so not the right person. I have written to GRO regarding the difference in age on their index and the age on the certificate. Told them I would not have ordered it if it said age 78 on their index. Said I shouldn't have to pay. I don't expect to get anywhere cause that's the way they are. But waiting for a reply.

Hi.

On freebmd the age is 78 and GRO is having an update so I cannot look there.

I went back in to doublecheck Annís entry in 1939 and it now says age 78. I am sure it said 68 when I ordered as I was thinking that is right age, right place although I did wonder about forename being Ann instead of Annie and last name being Johnston as it was expected to be likely Brown at time of death.

I have written to the Salford Local History Museum but the staff are furloughed while the Covid lockdown is in effect.

Two items. Firstly, GRO is not prepared to give me any refund for the death certificate of Ann Johnston, age 78, in June 1939. I am still sure that it used to say age 68 in the index. Oh well,
Secondly, I now have the will of Robert Brown who died Jan 10, 1979, naming only his wife Amelia and his son Bryan Brown. So not 100% sure it is the correct Robert Brown, but should be if we have the correct dob, as per " there is a death in 1979  March qtr  BROWN, Robert dob 20 Sept 1906, Salford 39 1104" .[/u]
Would anyone have access to an obituary for a Robert Brown who died Jan 10, 1979 at 328 Ribbleton Lane, Ribbleton, Preston, Lancashire?
Thank you
