Not to my knowledge (in the UK at least). The GRO index only gives names, quarters, year and registration district, and I don't think PR on line are searchable by age.

The information as to ages on the certificate are only as good as is given, and the parties often 'fudge' the ages to appear younger/older. Until the (mid?) 19th century, they only said 'of full age' which could be anything between 21 and 101!

**do you know if there's a way I can trace whether or not my grandmother kept her married name after she divorced my grandfather?**
Possibly historical ER may give the answer, but as she had children, she may have kept her married name for their sake. No doubt it depends how 'liberated' she felt.

no, marriages can only be found in the index by name, and the date ( quarter of the year ) and place ( registration district )

only the actual certificate will say the age and then just age, not date of birth

and for your previous question, the only way to know what name a person used is to find a record of the person using a particular name :-)

for example if the person used the name when they married or if their death was registered under the name

it's often a case of you have to know what you are trying to find out, before you can find it !

I have a question; does anyone know if there is a way to trace a persons marriage using their date of birth?

Hi,

Thank you so much I really appreciate this. I'm just wondering, do you know if there's a way I can trace whether or not my grandmother kept her married name after she divorced my grandfather? It would have been in either 1969 or 1970. Thanks.

Well, I have been told that she remained somewhere in the UK. (ok, so MAYBE its Scotland) The person who registered her death is supposed to be her son (my uncle) Peter and if so he would have known her birth year. Sad as it is, I have been lied to and my grandmother might even still be alive.

It's so entertaining researching a family with such a common name and its made so much better when members of that family lie constantly.

Sorry, I'm an American and I can't help but add a bit of sarcasm in here. :-D

Anyway thanks again for the help.

But bear in mind that it only covers England/Wales
she may have gone aboard etc

Almost four million Brits are living abroad <<<<<<<<

Plus if the person who registered her death got the birth year wrong !!! :-S

Up to 2005 I can not see a PAMELA M/MABEL BORN 1922 in the death indexes that would fit.

I have new information which leads me to believe that when my grandmother (Pamela Robinson nee Thompson) remarried she settled in Kent.
