Death on the GRO

Postby SDV » Sat Jun 15, 2019 4:46 pm

I know that William HOLTON was buried at Tingewick, Buckinghamshire on 02 Sep 1839. I would like to order a PDF from the GRO site of his death certificate, but cannot find the appropriate entry. Both Family Search and FreeBMD have it as Q3 1839 Buckingham 6 212, but it does not come up on the GRO. Anyone got an explanation?

To further complicate matters his burial does not appear on FMP's Buckinghamshire Burial Index, they have a burial in 1838, but for a 55 year old, whereas my man died aged 78. I got his burial date from the excellent People of Tingwick website.

I would really like a scan of the burial register for William and a PDF of his death certificate, as well as a scan of the burial register for his wife Elizabeth, who died in 1835 in Tingewick and was buried 22 Jun 1835.

Any suggestions?

Contact the GRO and quote the Ref you have and ask if they can supply the pdf. Failing that try and order the death cert direct from Buckinghamshire Record Office (it will cost you more)

FMP list it with the same details as you posted, but not Ancestry.

Yes, Ian does seem to possess the knack. This is the second time, he has found an impossible transcription error for me. His mind thinks in ways that mine doesn’t!
