Where are you searching? If you know when they were born you can narrow down the search on Ancestry.



Reggie Report 7 Jun 2013 22:25

If the death was after the mid-1860's , the age at death is on the index

What is the particular problem you have?

If the death was before 1911, look for the person on censuses.............then look for a death after the last one on which he/she appears, taking into account the last place of abode.................

There is nothing on any of the indices cross-referring with any other index.

Hello Jane, do you want to give us a specific example and we'll try to help you work through it?


Elizabeth2469049 Report 8 Jun 2013 00:30

The age on death certificates is not exact, it can be just guesswork by whoever notified the death, though it is probably approximate . If you can use Ancestry and know the area of the death, the Wills and Probate records give the date of death as well as the address.

hello everyone, thank you for replying, i appreciate it. i have found a birth certificate and a marriage record but cannot find the death record. david jones born in willesden 1930 , vol 3a page 404 but it isnt helping me because i cannot find the death record, alas i do not know when he died


LisaMaria Report 8 Jun 2013 18:58

i am thinking maybe he went abroad or something, in which case i will never know, i know his wife died in australia but i cannot find her record in the overseas section either


jax Report 8 Jun 2013 19:01

He may not have died yet


TootyFruity Report 8 Jun 2013 19:18

Also if he has died after 2006/07 then his death record will not be on line.


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 21:40

The 'overseas section' of which site?

As stated above, there is NO cross-referencing on the GRO index.

What else do you know about the man?

Did his wife have children with him?

He could so easily be alive.....don't write him off until you're!


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 21:43

Have you traced his sister?

Does she know anything?


Reggie Report 8 Jun 2013 21:44

His parents

Marriages Sep 1927 (>99%)

Chappell Emily C A Jones Willesden 3a 885
Jones Evan E Chappell Willesden 3a 885


LisaMaria Report 9 Jun 2013 00:40

hi again Reggie, his parents are dead, sister? who would that be? he had 3 boys , one of which you are helping me with on the l;iving relative thread. i was adopted so you wont find me under that name...


Graham Report 9 Jun 2013 08:41

Reggie, are you sure that's his parents? His surname was Jones; so wouldn't that have been the name of his father (not his mother)? :-S


Graham Report 9 Jun 2013 08:59

David Jones
died December 2003, Brent, London
born 7th January 1930
district number 2211B
reg no C37B
ent no 222
dor 1203

one possibility :-)


Reggie Report 9 Jun 2013 11:39


Unless Emily is a man's name......the marriage is that of his parents

I DID check his BIRTH to determine the MMN before posting the info


Reggie Report 9 Jun 2013 11:41


look for the sister's birth on freebmd.....................


Graham Report 9 Jun 2013 12:30

So David Jones has a father called Evan Chappell? I'm confused :-S


jax Report 9 Jun 2013 12:42


Have you not seen a marriage taken from Freebmd before?

Jones - husband

Chappell - wife


MarieCeleste Report 9 Jun 2013 12:50

Graham, this is the same marriage posted again but with the headings to clarify:

Surname First name(s) Spouse District Vol Page
Marriages Sep 1927
Chappell Emily C A Jones Willesden 3a 885
Jones Evan E Chappell Willesden 3a 885

(Which site do you use for BMDs?)
