I am looking at a Polly Hughes from Wolverhampton area who died at 28 1904 - 1932 Mother and Father Susannah and Ambrose Hughes. It is thought that she committed suicide. Does anyone know how I could find this information out? Or does anyone have a her or think you have her in your tree.
Thanks, Sophia

It will cost you £9.25 from the GRO - this site:

http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/

Follow the instructions on there and quote the details and ref numbers which Jan has given you. (Tick to say that you have the GRO ref.)

Come back if you need any help.

Thankyou so much for all your hard work..I am just focusing on the Hughes, as it is beginning to get a little bit confusing for me with all the name changes. I tend to follow the blood relations rather than the marriage relations. It is a big eye opener. How do u retrieve all this information?
