Hi Dave, just to let you know this is the right record. I ordered the certificate and it came today. It is my Bertha. She still lived at Braithwell when she died but she did die in Louth so thank you for that or I would have missed this record and maybe overlooked it with it being Louth.
Hi, just to let you know, I have found the burial place of one of the babies and am just off to the library to see if the other one is in the same cemetry. They are buried in a different cemetry to the rest of the family but they died long before the others so this may explain it. I might find...
Hi, I have just found out about two babies in one of my Ancestry lines who died at one year old, they were born and died inbetween censuses so I only found them by chance on the Mormon site baptisms.
Their deaths have been registered but I can't find a burial for them. The years of death were...
Hi, I am having the same problem tracing my great grandfather because his birth isn't registered. I have put another thread on the Births forum. Sam Deakin was born in 1854 in Sheffield but I have ordered his birth certificate and the Register Office have told me that his birth wasn't...
Hi Julie, thank you for this. I notice that there is a death for a Sarah Deakin - died in Sheffield in 1867 and gives the correct year of birth that tallies with my Sarah but as Sarah Deakin was alive on the 1871 census I have ruled this one out. However, it is the first record that comes up...
Hi, thanks for this, I will have a look at the Apprentice lists. I have looked at Sheffield Indexers for burials before, my great grandfather Sam Deakin's burial is listed, as are quite a few of the Deakin family but not my great great grandfather Sam unfortunately.
Hi, thanks for this, I will look into the apprentice lists and the ones with
I am just wondering about Sarah still though as she doesn’t appear in any other records. The Sissions could still be a link.
Hi again, I think there could be some link with the Sarah Sissons theory. The only thing is that Sarah Deakin on the 1871 census was born in Sheffield, and Sarah Sissons was born in Birmingham, could there be an error on the census? Also she is listed in the 1861 census as Sarah Dakin, char...
Hi Dave, thanks for that, it could be a possibility. I don't have relatives in Louth but Bertha and Charles could have moved there and then he could have gone back to Doncaster if he died after Bertha. It may be worth ordering the death cert to see if it is Bertha.
