    Indeed!

    Deaths Dec 1845
    --------------------------------
    LAWES Fanny Alderbury 8 157

    Note that although that page no is what the image shows, it's apparently out of the expected range for Alderbury in that quarter, (should be 145 - 152). Like another recent one, this may be a case where the GRO have used a hard to read manuscript page to provide a typed copy, and got it wrong.

    It doesn't look like Fanny lasted too long as a married woman, anyway.

    Zetters,

    The double posting has caused some confusion.

    I'll add the questions I asked in the other post....
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Do you have the marraige certificate for Luke Lawes and Fanny Smith from the March quarter of 1839 ?

    If so does it give any details for bride's father, or is that bit just left blank, please ?
