Barbara is quite correct. Do you not have access to the Oxford English Dictionary via your library service?
OED on 'touching':
Now somewhat archaic.
In reference or relation to; as relates...
Records of the Guards regiments were filed separately from other regiments and therefore are not included in the 'burnt records' available on Ancestry.
You used to have to contact the Guards...
The clue is in the word "index". The cards contain pointers to the original medal rolls. These medal rolls are available on Ancestry but Ancestry have not indexed them in such a way that you can get...
If you were to provide the surname and date and place of birth, we may be able to help.
Read the National Archives research guide first.
I doubt if it matters but Eliza seems to have been a witness at Fanny Hayes' wedding but spelled her name "E. Kates"
The 1890 baptism: Eliza's address is 3 Highworth Street.
1891 census of 3 Highworth Street:
Henry Cates; Head; 50; Marylebone
Hannah Cates; Wife; 51; Marylebone
Dolly Cates; Daughter; 16;...
The distribution of an estate isn't handled by some sort of official who wants documentary proof of everything. In most cases, the executor is a family member who just knows when little Jimmie is...
Yes but you specifically said "lost a leg"
If you post the details, we'll have a look for you. Date and place of birth and regiment would be good. Regimental number would be very good.
I take it you are aware that most WW1 service records...
There's some sort of record of a disability pension in "UK, WWI Pension Ledgers and Index Cards, 1914-1923" indexed on Ancestry. document on Fold3 (if anyone has access.)
Also there may be a...
Looks like 2B = Gallipoli. This ties up with the service record that says he was posted to the 11th battalion on 28-8-15 (date of entry therein). The 11th were involved in the Suvla Bay landing in ...

When Lesley asked for "a bit more" information, I think she really meant "quite a lot more". For example, his name and number and description of the index (what is it indexing?).
The purpose of an...
In the Ancestry version of the 1871 and 1881 censuses, load the main search page for "1881 England Census" or "1871 England Census", look under "Browse this Collection". There is a county called...
I would imagine Peter is looking for the HMS Falmouth (1807). See Wikipedia.
You're right. I'm wrong. I've been labouring under that misapprehension for many years.
Cripes, Pam. You'll be telling me that Father Christmas doesn't exist next ;)
I think there may have been something odd about Bootle registrations at that time. FreeBMD has an useful table mapping page numbers to volumes. For Bootle, 1837 and 1838 are missing from the table!
Isn't this something to do with the computerised system? Data now makes its way electronically to GRO but churches don't have terminals!
It's certainly not my understanding of the way the system...
Well, not really. See Pam's post. The local register office doesn't allocate the page number, GRO numbers them to reflect the filing system used by GRO.
I'm not sure about the late receipt...
Vol 25 Page 16DD
It's just part of the page number. We don't need to know what it means. You use it to order a copy of the certificate.
If you used FreeBMD you'd be able to use their diagnostics....
(a) Try Refresh
(b) The tick box should appear just to the left of the words "I'm not a robot". Try clicking where the box should be.

I'm not clear what that means. Does that mean that you know where to obtain it but haven't done so?
I would imagine that you would need to know at least which garrison he was in.
