Just so that you can see how it appears on the GRO website, here it is again.

SHARPS, JAMES       BROWN 
GRO Reference: 1878  M Quarter in MANCHESTER  Volume 08D  Page 316

Make sure you are on the Search the GRO online index.  Indicate Birth by clicking the little round circle.  Fill in all the details as shown above, click the blue Search button and it should appear.

To order the cert as a pdf, click on the little white button to the left of the name, then click on the blue PDF button.  You then get taken through the order process.  A PDF costs 7.  A cert costs 11.

This is the register/log in page:-

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/Login.asp

Are you registered on the above website?  If not then you need to register first before you can order the PDF.  Once you have done that you can then click on the Search the GRO Online Index which is in a box on the right hand side.

Apologies if you know all this but your reply suggests you are not clear about it.

I just wanted to say a big thankyou - and that you are all so very helpful ! I feel very welcomed and supported :)
