    George Brain, born 1840, Bletchingdon, Oxon.

    Not all the soldiers discharge papers on FMP are indexed by Regiment, so I'd just search the surname Brain - it should be simple to rule most of the G or George entries out. If he died in service though, it's unlikely a record will have been retained.

    Alfred Edward Broughton

    You say the birth cert gives fathers Regiment as 16th. Does it just say 16th or 16th Foot? 16th Lancers is an entirely different regiment so the man you found in 1881 might not be the same man. There are service records on FindMyPast for 2 men named Alfred Broughton of 16th Foot. Worth a look!

    Sealed Records

    It seems that available records are held at London Metropolitan Archives for Archway Hospital (see below) although there's no mention of patients records. Might be worth emailing LMA...

    Sealed Records

    Actually I received FULL medical records for someone in the 1940's/50's, but as I said, it was a hospital record.

    Sealed Records

    I've been granted access to medical records well within that period. Had to apply to the local Health Authority but permission was granted. This was for a Hospital record, though, rather than a general medical record. Worth a try!

    The refs posted by gibbo are actually for the Naturalisation certificate. The ref I gave is the case file so it should hold more information.

    There's a naturalisation file for a Nathan Silverman living in Leeds at the National Archives, and dated 1904 - their reference HO144/762/119742 I've looked at lots of naturalisation files at the National Archives and they would normally give date and place of birth and names of both parents.
