On a recent post it was suggested that a death could be found by using the DOB. I have tried this on FreeBMD, but all I get is "not a valid DOB" Any suggestions? Bob

Just to add a bit more to my post, I am looking for death for Amy Spencer, born 27th October 1888. She disappears after the 1911 census. She may or may not have married. Bob

If the person died after 1969 then the death may be found by using the birthdate

Thanks for that Jax. Two possibles there, I can exclude the two with middle names. Bob
