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

Unfortunately the site seems to be down at the moment.

I would be interested to hear if anyone has ever found a cert on sites such as this, the likelihood is very small.

Alternatively you could put a posem on FreeBMD.

You could also add the information as a POSTEM on FreeBMD

I have done this for all my certificates. If I only help 1 person this way I will be happy. :-D
