You need to find out what name is represented by the 'W'. The cert will give you that info......together with DOB.

The following is a perfect illustration of the need to realise that death cert info can be inaccurate

I think this is her death but like I have said you need some certificates from GRO at £10.00 each you will need the volume number and the page number which are shown above >>>>>>>>>>>>>

I know u are new but this may be the best we can do until you have confirmed this IS THE RIGHT family

This can't be Elsie as I was born in 1978 and I used to visit her as a young girl, I'll try and get hold of the certificates, thanks so much for your help.

Where did you visit her? was it in the West Ham area?

The chances of her still being alive are very slim...she may have even died in the last 6 years and those records will not be online

Jennifer

Jennifer Report 11 Nov 2012 14:48

She lived in east ham when I used to visit her, yes I know what you mean she would be 98 years old now.

Jennifer Report 11 Nov 2012 15:14

The w in Elsie's name stands for Wallace I think

Can you remember when you last visited her, and any reason why you stopped?

Electoral roll search of last known address, to see when 'moved'?

Jennifer

Jennifer Report 11 Nov 2012 16:23

Elsie was my mums aunt, I was only a little girl so, I think my mum and Elsie just lost touch over the years, but I remember her well and she was such a lovely lady, she lived in east ham the last time I went there, but have no idea of the name of the road or where. I will have a look on the electoral roll thanks.

Thank goodness for that we are getting somewhere ......Jennifer we dont know you or your age or the fact that you met her in 1978 and as I said there were 64,000 Elsie Lewis named !!! Also if she died in the last 2 years the register May not show on the internet yet
