I think the site is still...

Thanks, Guy, for your attempt to enlighten and advise. However, I had already tried the minimalist approach, and have just now tried it again – no joy. I am not going to pursue the matter any further...
Points taken, Peter: but if one gives accurately the information they ask for, the result should be positive!
Also, if one is using the index not to get a certificate but to find out a particular...
While I agree completely with Christina and Pam on this issue, there are two notes of caution which I want to make:-
1. On one occasion, several years ago now, I ordered a certificate from GRO,...
Quite a few towns that had grown up during the industrial revolution obtained borough status under the Municipal Corporations Act, 1835. Back then, only places with an Anglican cathedral (preferably...
I think Pam has the address right - Queen's Road. That wasn't one of my other interpretations, but I can see Queen's now I've been prompted!
Hewer and heaver were both commonly used terms,...
Section 6: Coal Hewer, I think, not Heaver.
Section 7: Thomas Caisley, Father, 22 ?Anson's? Road, Bedlington Station. The name of the road could also be several other things, so perhaps a street map...

You are welcome! It made a change from pursuing legions of Sparrows and their connections.

To satisfy my own curiosity, as well as in the hope of being useful, I have dug a little deeper and found the following additional information:
William Wetten (son of Thomas) aged 34, married...

is a good starting point for Epsom and Ewell history
but perhaps you know it already, as it is where the workhouse records are available.

A trawl at one of the pay-sites gives this:
Harriet daughter of John and Jane was baptised on 23rd December 1832 in Ewell.
Fanny Jane Dudley, illegitimate daughter of Harriet, was baptised on...

I've just been looking at the list of births in Epsom Workhouse, and the only Fanny Jane Dudley actually born there was the 1855 daughter of Harriet. One or possibly two women called Fanny Dudley...

I also have access to the Epsom workhouse lists; because, having lived in Epsom for a time, I took an interest in what they could tell me about the local Sparrows.
[Quote:] Fanny Jane Dudley -...
It seems unlikely, as there were very few Normans even in England before 1066, despite Edward the Confessor's having been in exile in Normandy before he became king. However, it's not impossible that...
I knew my mother's parents, both born in 1884; also my father's mother, born in 1882. But that's as far back as I can go, despite being past my three score years and ten!
Here is a new twist:
The Sarah Sparrow who had an illegitimate son John Cri* Sparrow baptised on 8th June 1823 married John Crisp on 14th July 1823, so there is a probability that Cri* originally...
Tendring is/was one of many registration districts into which the county of Essex was divided for the purpose of registrations of births deaths and marriages, and possibly electoral registers too....
Thanks, Christina. For obvious reasons, I see any Sparrow enquiries – which seem very rare on b-g – as being my province, especially if there is a Suffolk connection!
After consulting the FreeREG site (as well as pay-sites for which I have subscriptions), this is what I have found:-
Walter Herbert Sparrow, who married Ida M. Bales in 1931, was born in 1902,...
It would seem that the Edmund C Sparrow found by Christina was a younger brother (born 1909) of Walter Herbert. He can be found in the 1939 Gebneral Register at FMP, with his widowed mother mentioned...
One would need his birth certificate to be certain, but it looks as if Walter Herbert Sparrow was son of Edward Sparrow and Sarah Hills, who were married in 1895. This family appears in the 1901 and...
FreeBMD has a birth registration for a Walter Herbert Sparrow in 1902 [3rd Q] in Tendring registration district, which is/was in the east of Essex, therefore close to Ipswich; the district included...
I'm glad to see that Christina has found so much useful stuff, because a swift trawl through my large collection of Suffolk Sparrow families has produced nothing apparently relevant. Of course,...

A British serviceman who died at Dunkirk most likely did so in May-June 1940, during the evacuation – not in 1939. Do you have their exact names
I now see that Pam got in just ahead of me!
I'm sure Megan is right. Also, if you go to "Help" from the top of Ancestry home page after signing in, you will get to a page which answers common questions, including how to deal with trees.
