90 days of complimentary Value-Added Services (which includes complete search access) to new registrants on
I'm not sure what is covered, as I've only used JewishGen for burial...
Up to 50% on data downloads (parish registers, directories and the like) plus other bits and pieces:
An 1896 London Atlas seems to equate the Wapping one with Great Hermitage Street, now Hermitage Wall, north of and parallel to Wapping High Street, and extending west to Sampson St or Knighten St.
If they couldn't afford to purchase a "private" grave for several family burials, they would have gone to "common" or "public" graves where a number of unrelated people were buried together. Usually...

UKPressOnline has 20th century national newspapers. It's a pay site, but you can search free. Individual borough archives usually have local papers on microfilm, but you probably won't want to visit...
As the 1939 data was also used by the NHS for many years (my NHS card number was the same as that on my identity card), it was continuously updated.
The Commonwealth War Graves site lists many from WW2. Put "Civilian War Dead" (without the quotes) as "Regiment" (there's also a Civilian War Dead Link option, but I'm not clear what the difference...
No sign of them on Find A Grave (whose database is made up of graves of records found by members) or deceasedonline (which only has registers for those cemeteries signed up to it). Ancestry has them...

Sorry, I was being lazy and leaving people to go back to elsinore's post. The whole catalogue is at
and the page 194...

Since this thread has been revived, I'll just do what I never got round to before and thank Peter (elsinore) for the link in post #22 to the Hobbies catalogue. This has revealed the origin of two...

Could there be a sticky that summarises sites' regular free periods, e.g. Ancestry and FMP usually do something around Remembrance weekend. This may avoid people taking out a month's sub or buying...

Without looking at the instructions, I guess the definition of "head" may have just been the most senior member of the family present on the night. I came across an entry in a different years's...

I'd guess he filled in the form in advance and then got called away unexpectedly on business or a family emergency (did any far away relatives die around that time?) Maybe he was overseas or whoever...

Be aware that in deaths involving investigation and/or an inquest the death registration may be some time after the actual death, though a coroner can give permission for burial before the...
There is a page about Calliope, including mention of John Anderson, on The Wreck Site: www dot wrecksite dot eu. It appears there were two Calliopes sunk in 1917. Put the name in the search box and...
A dictionary definition of AND/OR found by a web search agrees with what I have always taken it to mean, i.e you must supply one or the other but can supply both.

A worthy project which I have bookmarked.
Re your "Unknown Location" section, you may be able to place some of these using the Armed Forces Memorial site which covers many outside the WW1/WW2 date...
The numbers on Find A Grave only tell you what burials its volunteers have entered/photographed. With a very few exceptions, we do not have access to the registers, let alone time to key all the...
You might find some basic information in Islington Council Minutes. Our local ones, for example, include appointments and terminations thereof, illness, pay rises, promotions, and commendations. But...
The relevant Archives/Local Studies Library should also have Council Minutes which will at least tell you when he served, but tend not to tell you much about what individual Councillors did apart...

A local newspaper for the place where he or his parents lived may have a report of his death, which may say something like: "he enlisted on his 17th birthday and went to France 5 months later". There...
Putting "family announcements", "death notices" or similar phrases into your favourite search engine will give you a number of sites to search, but judging by our local rags, such notices are going...
Thanks Christina. I don't know whether to blame my dyslexic note-taking or the poor quality of the library's microfilm. Maybe I'll post a list of names/numbers I can't verify when I get to the end of...
