The names of each of the fathers (if known) will be on the 1881 marriage cert.......

It will cost £9.25 order on line from the GRO

Reggie Report 24 Dec 2012 12:10

You have to buy it..................using the references from the INDEX

duurrr i feel stupid now lol. thanks so much reggie. with alot of records im finding it defo is the same person but the birthda is varied , is this usual??

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 24 Dec 2012 12:15

Mark, it's very common for birth dates to vary a few years either way. People often weren't quite so literate back then.

Here's the link for ordering certificates. (Tick the box where it asks if GRO ref is known and use the info Reggie has provided). http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/

Thank you. how do i got about finding Marys missing childern. i cant find records of them any where. this is driving me potty lol x

MarieCeleste

MarieCeleste Report 24 Dec 2012 12:20

When did Mary come into the equation with missing children?

Reggie

Reggie Report 24 Dec 2012 12:23

Which 'missing' children? And presumably you mean HARRIET's?

You say you can only account for SEVEN, then proceed to list the names of EIGHT

EIGHT are accounted for on the census returns...........so look for a death..then find a matching birth

Mark

Mark Report 24 Dec 2012 12:31

and yes 8 names sorry like i said getting into a muddle now.
