  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Certificates for stillborn babies

  16. 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).
