I've had the same situation; I contacted the relevant district Registrar who was unable to help and referred me on to the GRO. They were very helpful - you can see their response here:...
This report is particularly helpful for those of us whose ancestors were in one of those workhouses that just used initials for the paupers in 1861.

Have you looked at the Victorian London website?
Lots of information and extracts there about Spitalfields.
Having downloaded the book and had a very quick browse I can't wait for a quiet period to read it properly.
For obvious reasons I shall read two chapters with particular interest, Halfpenny Ices...

I have an example from 1852 of the same situation and again one ceremony was in a CoE church, the other RC; with my example, however, both ceremonies occurred on the same day. No doubt...
Sometimes the downloaded pdf files have a much poorer resolution than the images you see on the screen, so much so that they can be illegible. In such cases the method I adopt is to take a clip of...
GEDCOM files are simply text (.txt) files with a .ged extension so you can edit it with a text editor like Wordpad; so, if all the errors are similar you could open in Wordpad and use the search and...
