    Default George Newlyn HART - born in Gibraltar

    My Uncle, my Mother's brother, was born in Gibraltar on 21st March 1907. My Mother was conceived there but born in Southsea, Hampshire 27th November 1908. Their father, my grandfather, was a dockyard shipwright working in H.M.docks in Portsmouth. He travelled for this job, hence Gibraltar.

    Although I know where my Uncle George was born I would love to find his birth certificate and possible baptism. I have looked online but cannot see that there is a Public Record Office in Gibraltar.

    Does anyone have any idea how it might be possible for me to get a copy of said certificate?

    Thank you very much. I am hoping to visit Gibraltar later this year so will get in touch with them.

    Have you looked in the Overseas Births section of the National Archives?

    Many moons ago, yes I did. That was in the days when I used to visit the TNA. Thanks for responding.

    It has taken a while but at long last I have visited 3, Secretary's Lane and ordered my uncle's birth certificate. They are posting it to me and should arrive any day now!
