View Full Version : Worcester Record Office

If anyone is going to Worcester Record Office and would have a spare five minutes :D in which they could look in one parish register, and if they strike lucky, transcribe the marriage certificate for me, could they please contact me for the details.
I only have the quarter and year for the marriage, but I think it was in Earls Croome which seems to be a fairly small village so I'm hoping that my marriage will be one of a few.
Earls Croome is a very small parish. There is an excellent marriage index for Worcestershire pre 1837 but I assume your marriage is after that. Give me the details and I will see what I can do.

Thank you very much for your offer. My apologies for seeming to be slow in replying, but by the time I'd finished typing out
http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14759 the server was too busy to let me post either that story or my reply to you. As the reply is now a cut-and paste job I'm hoping that there isn't any duplication......
In the light of other information I've uncovered in the last 24 hours I wonder if I might slightly change my request please?
I forgot that, provided I have a date, Record Offices will usually provide a photocopy of the PR entry, and Worcester RO have confirmed that they will do this.
So to start with, I would appreciate the date of the marriage of Mary Theresa Burdett COVENTRY and George Seaham T. DE WINDT which was registered in March quarter 1873. If it's not in the Earls Croome PR, please do NOT (capitals for emphasis only) look in any other PRs. I'm just assuming that it will be Earls Croome because Mary was living there in both the 1871 and 1881 census.
I was then going to ask if you would look for the burial of George, but I've just found a death registration for him in St George Hanover Square registration district - um, yes, but his body could still have gone back to Earls Croome for burial, so...
Would it be at all possible for you to please look for the burial of George Tucker Seaham/George Seaham Tucker De WINDT, whose death was registered in the December quarter 1876. A transcription of that entry would be very much appreciated - if he was buried in EC that is. :)

The previous message was OK up to the bit about 'his body could have gone back to Earls Croome for burial so.....'. I'll try again with the last paragraph.....
