Re: Baby death

Try the opposite approach - input the first name(s) and the year only. That may produce hundreds of results. Sort them by surname and see if it comes up (possibly mis-spelled in the index). Failing that if you know where to expect the birth to have been registered, sort them by RD Name and see if th...

Re: Baby death

So long as there was a 'live' birth, there should be both a birth and a death certificate. In my family tree [my generation], there was a child who survived only 15 hours; born prematurely at home about 2.10am and died at 6pm the same day in the maternity hospital. The birth and death were both regi...

Re: Ella Mary Maclennan

Regarding the address listed above, 62 Colinton Road - that house and its neighbouring petrol station were demolished around 20 years back, and the combined site is now the site of a Tesco Express supermarket and a funeral director's premises. It is about three miles from home for me. 1940s OS map v...

Re: Electoral Registers 1939-1950

The online telephone directories on Ancestry didn't show this family either. However, back in those days only a minority of folks would have had a phone.

Re: Valuation Roll Info

I have looked at quite a few valuation rolls, and there doesn't seem like a consistent method for the order of the properties in a tenement stair. You do well if you find one that tells you which level each flat is on (1F, 2F, etc.). One that I have been looking at for a local history project is a t...

Re: Helen Gray 1916

Hi Annette, If she died of a heart attack after the assault, would there have been a charge of murder? If the person who made the assault was convicted, there could have been an argument that the victim died of a heart attack, therefore no murder took place. It may be that if there was a conviction ...
