    Have you tried looking for Presbyterian churches for the burial, or even a baptism for Percy? My London ancestos baptised in the local Cof E in Southwark but I couldn't find two crucial burials. I eventually found them in a Methodist Chapel. The connection must have been strong as 200 years on the family is still Methodist or associated churches.pwholt

    I have checked out Percy Holroyd born in Huddersfield,but there doesn't seem to be any connection with Emily. I don't understand why he was registered as Percy McDuff at the school in 1884 either. Does seem a bit strange,although Emily may not have been able to care for him,so made an arrangement with the McDuff family to care for Percy. We may never know. I really hope I am able to trace some more info about Emily's life,though.
    Many thanks again.
    Kind regards

    A tree says that Percy was born at Queen Charlotte's Hospital.

    If that's correct then London Metropolitan Archives has the Register of In-Patients. For 1881 the reference is H27/QC/B/01/005. How much they might tell you though I've no idea.

    Hi,Percy was indeed born at Queen Charlotte's Hospital; I have his birth certificate.I have checked the LMA ref you gave me, but cannot access the records as they don't seem to be digitised. I am unable to travel to London & the cost of them doing a search is too expensive.On the backburner at the moment I am afraid. I also wondered if there would be records for Paddington Infirmary where Emily died,but haven't found anything yet. Hopefully the records will be digitised at some point.
    Regards

    I looked for those too, and it seems a new infirmary was opened in 1886. Familysearch has the admission and discharge register (images) for Paddington Workhouse Infirmary Harrow Road from February 1886, but of course Emily died 20 January 1886.....

    ADDED: Forgot to add that I also checked the Paddington Workhouse admissions for her from 1883-1886, and again nothing.
