I have 2 certificates that I have ordered from GRO only to find they are not linked to my family - they may be of use to others

marriage certificate - Arthur Thomas Sawyer (father Samuel Sawyer) to Alice Maud McCabe (father Stephen McCabe) - August 25 1917

death certificate - Reginald Jack Hall-Wright - died 28 February 2004 - nottingham

If these can be of use to others please message me with your address or for further information from the certificates

Hi Josephine,

You can add a Postem on Freebmd with your information and help another person searching for the family

You can always set yourself up a free email account if you prefer not to give your regular email address
