thankyou for your help. i think the marriage details may be right with the names frederick sherwood and kathleen m a hernon. although i have no idea where the 'a' comes from. i now have the information to get the marriage certificate and take it from ther .

Hello Gillian,

Not a birth registration but the marriage cert may help with the Father's name, and witnesses may also give some clues.

from GRO index......

District = Barton I

Quarter= A/M/J

when you only have a name and birth date of a person. and you do not know if they wewre born in ireland or england how would you go about getting their birth certificate and where would you send for it. my husband does not know where his mother kathleen may hernon was born it may have been killarney or lancashire he thinks . but it may just as well have been anywhere. he also does not know the names of his grandparents i need help
