Hi, I seem to be hitting a brick wall in finding deaths of my GG Grandparents. Both were born in Bradford, William in 1861 and Martha Ellen nee Topham in 1864. I know that they married in 1881 and moved to Blackpool where they still were in 1911 (census records). Any help with this would be really appreciated.
Thanks
Julie

Hi Julie,

A warm welcome to FHUK.

Will have a look in the death index and hopefully will find them, they could have lived for many years so may take a bit longer.

Hi Julie and Steve
Thanks for your help :) . Steve I can't tie that one down into my family at the moment. I don't think any of the Allen's lived in Preston. Will keep it in mind though.
Julie

Hi Julie
Whoa, thankyou so much, that definately looks like them. I have been looking for these pair for 4 years now, so you can guess how grateful I am. I was beginning to think they may have emigrated to America or something. They lived to a good old age didn't they, not good for you though as it took some looking!

I will send off for the certificates and let you know if they are the real deal (I'm sure they are).

I see you are also researching the Allen surname (not the Bradford ones are they?)

Anyway thanks again Julie, you have made my week!!!
