Missing death certificate - Schultz

Postby Bryans » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:17 am

I'd be grateful if anyone can help me locate a missing death certificate for Emily Elizabeth Schultz (nee Hinton) who died in Q4 1884 aged 42. Her death was reported in the London Evening Standard of 28 November 1884 as a Coroner's inquest in Lambeth. Emily was buried in St Pancras Cemetery, Camden on 3 December 1884. I have used the GRO online search (including name variants) without success. I have asked Lambeth Regustrar Office if they have the original death register for the period, but they say GRO have it. I am waiting for GRO to reply to my query. Help, please!!

GRO don't hold the original death registers.

Lambeth are one of the boroughs who tend to refer anyone requesting a historic certificate to the GRO website.

The coroner should have passed the details for the registration to the registrar after the inquest - maybe it got lost somewhere and never got registered.

I don’t see it either. But, do you need it? It’s not going to give you any more information than is in that delightful (if that is the right word given the circumstances surrounding her death) newspaper report of the inquest.
