  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Certificates for stillborn babies

    At one time, the Direct.gov website had an easy to navigate system so that it was relatively simple to discover how to order certificates for stillborn babes. However, recently, they have re-vamped their website. One of our erstwhile members, terrysfamily, has run the gauntlet of trying to...

  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: Reference Checking

    For years I have bought certificates using the on line service, and want to do so again, although because I am not 100 per cent certain about whether or I have the right entry I wanted to include some reference checks - e.g. was the father Joseph Bloggs? However, I could find any facility on the...

  1. completed indenture certificates from 1730's

Apparently William's indenture ended earlier than the...

  3. Narrowing Down Death Certificates

    I know you can ask the GRO to send you a birth certificate for a particular person, but ask them to only send to you if the parents are such-and-such (taking longer but getting you a refund if they don't find it). Can you do a similar thing for death certificates? That is, ask them to send you...
