On freebmd (and Genes) there a a number of Buckley/Ward births listed in Staffordshire 1917-1937.

If they stayed in the Stoke reg district, then there are births in 1925, 1929 and 1933. These could be the children of a dfferent Buckley/Ward marriage. You'd need to purchase the BC to find out.

thank you for looking that is has far as i can get i was just hoping i could find some children as i cant find any


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 11 May 2013 11:53

There are possibles if you've already searched, BUT the only way you are going to confirm is by buying at least one of the BC.

Have you bought the DC to see if the informant is an offspring?
Have you used the 'search all trees' function to see if anyone else has him listed?


Amanda Report 11 May 2013 13:22

i didnt know you could get that sort of info of a DC thank you


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 11 May 2013 14:06

In 1937 you'd get
Place and date of death
Usual residence if different
Age and for males occupation
Cause of death and certifying doctor's name
Informant and informant's address but not necessarily relationship. That's when the fun starts!

Of course, if the informant gave incorrect information - that's what is recorded?

thank you
