Hi Rebecca i know this thread is a year old and i hope you managed to sort the grave out for your Uncle.
I wondered if you were still researching this Horrocks line ? I have Horrocks from Aughton back to the 1600's including Daniels and Georges.

We'll get right on it, thanks so much.

If it was my problem I would start with the uncle's birth certificate followed my his parents marriage cert and then their birth cert and so on... till you can prove the unbroken line.

Could be expensive, it depends how much proof the vicar needs to use George's grave.

Rebecca

Rebecca Report 15 Jan 2013 20:08

Thanks so much for that help :) what do you think I should do next?

Mike * Report 15 Jan 2013 20:06

Rebecca, a birth record entry is not a certificate.

You need to buy certificates from the General Reg Off.

You can apply online, here's the link

You also need to cross check Daniel's marriage certificate for his father's name and occupation.

A tree on Ancestry has ..... (but would stll need verifying )

Just says year of registration 1873 and Jan-Feb-Mar district West Derby Lancashire, no maiden name.

Mike * Report 15 Jan 2013 20:00

If as you say you have Daniel's birth cert, it would tell you his exact date of birth and his mother's maiden name.

Rebecca

Rebecca Report 15 Jan 2013 19:56

I had Daniel's siblings down as Mary (1863) , James (1867) and Ellen (1869). I never knew Daniel's mother's surname the person who helped me last time said it was unknown.

Elizabeth Hardman birth was 1872 not 1808 - big blunder!!

Rebecca

Rebecca Report 15 Jan 2013 19:44

No his DOB isn't present. I've got a birth certificate which is Jan-Feb-Mar 1873 and death Oct-Nov-Dec 1933. All I know is that he died being trampled by horses as he was a carter if that helps?

Mike *

Mike * Report 15 Jan 2013 19:34

Is Daniel's DOB on his death cert ?

Don't rely on censuses.
Certificates are needed in this case if you want to be sure you have the right line.

Rebecca

Rebecca Report 15 Jan 2013 19:31

Location is Liverpool. Whoops didn't even notice that big mistake with Hardman.
Yes he is buried under George 'Harrocks' in St. Chads in Kirkby.
I'm pretty sure Daniel was in Kirkby not Whiston.
I've looked through the censuses and it seems that Daniel was the son of James and Ellen.
