Seasonal Greeting's to you also.... Trudi..... Not sure if you have access to those Census returns for George Dayley ( 1891.) & 1901..... If you want the transcripts of these then please ask ... MIKE.

Thanks Mike and Jane. I thought I was going mad as I couldn't find him!! The spelling has stumped me this time. Have a great Christmas everyone. I'm in retail so very busy. Trudi

I just got the Welford Road cemetary burials index 1849-1890 so let me know if you need any look ups. Its quite useful as once you have found the person you want by looking via surname there is another page that has the burials sorted in plots so you can see who else is in the grave


Beverly Report 11 Dec 2005 20:25

Hi Mike I would be happy for any assistance you can give me, so long as you have the time. You help so many people I wonder when you have time to do your own research! I must admit I am at a loss as to where to look next with regards to George and Harrietts births, apart from sending for the 1873 certificate, which I will do tonight. Jane, their mother, married John Collins in 1882 and so George and Harriett changed their surnames on the 1891 census, although George was listed as Geo Carter Collins. Interestingly George gave his surname as Carter when he married in 1910. Thanks again Bev

Greeting's Again John ..... Yep........ Those were my two instructors ... That was for the one on the corner of St. Albans Road by Vicky Park Irene had a grip like a vice as I :0)))) Beverley Perry... May I have another look for you ...There was a couple with a middle name Carter but not George or Harriett..... Jane Carter Timson ..but can't be sure of parents with out looking again ..... I understand that after the year 1871. ALL events had to be registered .... MIKE.


Beverly Report 9 Dec 2005 19:32

Hi Mike Thanks very much for looking. I don't think the double baptism will be my family. It looks like I will have to put my hands in my pocket and send for the 1873 birth certificate to find out one way or another if it's George's. I don't hold out much hope. I presume it wasn't compulsory to register children at that time. Thanks again Bev

Mike Many thanks, do you recall if your tutor was a Irene or Ken TOMKINS ? Jon
