  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: Certificates for stillborn babies

    At one time, the Direct.gov website had an easy to navigate system so that it was relatively simple to discover how to order certificates for stillborn babes.

  2. A Question

    On a death certificate I have recently received the deceased is registered as "Lawrence Arthur Johnson otherwise Jacobs". It is suspected that Lawrence's father changed the name from Jacobs to Johnson but why would his death registry enter both names. Is this common? And is there any particular...

    Would I be right in thinking that if a marriage certificate (1871) does not show the groom's (aged 23) father then they probably didn't know who he was! (There are just dashes in the name and ranks spaces). Does this also mean that I can go no further back? Stupidly, a few months ago I did...
