Omg brill :-D :-D :-D well my next question is,is it possible that a child can b born and not registered at birth? The reason I ask is because my dad's sister has never been able to find a birth record for herself I've here bit can only find a winifred Millington born that year. I know her date of birth is 21st March 1940 and her father is obviously edward Wilfred spoken about above :-) wow ok so that's both sets of great grand parents found I wonder how far back I can go :-D xx

The North Wales BMD site may be of help..

hayley Report 7 Feb 2013 03:59

Oh really thank u will check it out :)


PricklyHolly Report 7 Feb 2013 09:42

I thnk in order to go back further, you will need to purchase a copy of Thomas Millington and Jane's marriage cert to find out who their Fathers were.

With a name like Jane Jones........there are quite a few to choose from looking at the 1891 census.



hayley Report 7 Feb 2013 13:24

Yes I did notice that! Haha I searched Jane Jones and it came up with about 2000 results :-S xx

Hi everyone me again just a quick question does anyone know how to fin oh ho someone died? I know-how to find death certs on here but it doesn't give you cause of death thank in advance


Dea Report 11 Feb 2013 07:47

You will only find the cause of death on the death cert Hayley, unless, of course, there was any 'foul play' or dramatic accident involved, in which case you might find a newspaper article or an inquest.

hayley Report 11 Feb 2013 09:41

Ok thanks dea the death records on here just state when they died not how so the only way I'd find out how is by buying a copy of the actual death cert? X

hayley Report 18 Feb 2013 22:07

Hiya everyone me again :-D just wondering my taid ( grandad) was in the navy but that's all I know and I would to find out what ship he served on etc I think he was about 17-20 which when he joined a I've seen photos so that would've been the early 30s and I've typed his name in on military records on here but can't find anything anyone have any ideas? Thanks again for your help :-D


Madmeg Report 19 Feb 2013 01:54

Am I being mercenary, but I think Hayley needs to get the marriage cert of Edward Wilfred Millington and Elizabeth Hulley before continuing further. In fact I would be even more nitpicking and suggest she gets her father's birth certificate first, to prove his parents.

She doesn't seem to know the various aunts that have been suggested, so I think she should start at base.
