Hi I am trying to trace any member of a Rowlands family from Holyhead. The information I have is that a Thomas Rowlands married a Sarah Harris in 1934 in Holyhead. They went on to have 6 children.
The eldest child was Richard (27/8/1934), Hywel (1936), Margaret (1938), John (1939), Isabel (1942) and Catherine (1944).
I believe Richard married a Mary jones in 1960 and the went o. To have two daughters before separating. I also believe Richard was a minister in the forces then went on to run a chicken farm in Anglesey. Richard passed away in June 1995
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Katy Davies.

Hi Liz I have look at getting a certificate and I'm wondering if you could shed any light on the GRO reference number, I do not know the exact date of Richards death.
Many thanks Katy.

You don’t need the actual dod, but you do need his age in years.

Here’s a different version giving his age as 60

Name: Richard Rowlands
Birth Date: 28 Jul 1934
Date of Registration: Jun 1995
Age at Death: 60
Registration District: Ynys Mon
Inferred County: Gwynedd
Register Number: 29A
District and Subdistrict: 8571
Entry number: 25

Make sure you tick the box that says you know the gro ref

+++DetEcTive+++ Report 12 Jul 2013 15:38

For the gro ref I'd use

Ynys Mon 29A 8571

The only other information you *must* supply is his surname and forename
