thought I would give an update we have ordered a death certificate and get it as a pdf
for 7 pounds

The family has been looking for this since 1971 but at that time there was no computers and details were hard to match there was a lot of guessing and we did manage to find a few things writing lots of letters

My eldest son is the one to found him . He decided to do some research We ae now waiting for the certificate which should come in a few days

once again thank you all for your help I couldnt have done it without you

Births 1837-1934 and 1984-2020, and deaths 1837 - 2020 (no marriages):

You have to register, but it's free to search, and then you order a cert on the same site.

Invaluable - births and deaths give the person's full name , and births also give the mother's maiden surname .

The GRO site has records from England and Wales only.

The Stepney registration district also covers Limehouse so this very much the right area as Stepney & Limehouse are next door.

The following is the record that Elizabeth refers to, image on Ancestry

Detail Source
Name: John Hall
Age: 73
Abode Frederick Square, Stepney
Birth Date: abt 1787
Burial Date: 24 Sep 1860
Burial Place: London, England
Reference Number: CTHC/01/010

Given the details on the record, I agree with Gwyn re the death registration.


ErikaH Report 12 Jun 2022 16:22

Do you have a baptism record for him, or are you using only census info to determine his birth year?


ArgyllGran Report 12 Jun 2022 08:29

The address of the man who died 24 Sept 1860 was Frederick Square, Stepney, so the death posted by Gwyn will relate to that.

He's stated to be 2 years older than your John Hall is said to be in 1851 census - but ages on death certs are only as good as the informant's knowledge.
