George Cross born 1881

My late mother Lily Stephens (nee Cross) never knew she had any Uncles or Aunts on the Cross line. My research into the family shows that she had two Aunts and one Uncle, a George Cross. I have found most information on the Aunts but I am stuck on Uncle George Cross. George was born in 1881 at Horseshoe Alley, Westminster, London and he was born Blind as was his father Elisha Cross who was ...

LDS Microfiches

Can anyone please answer my query?

Do the LDS Microfiches/films contain more details or information than that transcribed on the Familysearch site?

I have a centre not too far from me and would be interested in ordering but it seems pointless if they reveal no more than I can already see on the internet.

Grateful thanks if anyone can advise. :)
