Can anyone help me to locate the place in Ilse-of -man so I can look up my Grandfathers will. His name is Edward Henry Symonds and he died on the Ilse- of -man.
Thanks from Starlight.
Hi Starlight ;D

After a quick search on the web, I think your best bet would be the General Registry on the Isle of Man. This is where they hold birth, death and marriage certificates and, on the site, it says that these are available for a fee. The address is - General Registry Office, Deemsters Walk, Buck's Road, Douglas, Isle of Man, IM1 3AR. The telephone number is 01624 687039 and the email address is civil@registry.gov.im. If you need any more help, don't hesitate to come back and ask!!
Hi Starlight
If you have not had any success with your Symonds Will see my little 'voluntary advert', would you like me to see if there are any details in the Birmingham Library.
Ann :)
;D Hi Ann, I am so sorry that I did not answer your message before now, I have been in and out of hospital for the past few months with a bad heart, yes please I would like you to help me all you can if this is still ok with you. I cannot even find my grandfathers bith or marriage, been searching for years. Thanks again sorry its so late an answer back.
Regards Starlight :)
I'm the one that should apologise now!! I am moving to Wales and thought that I had better get my name taken off this board and then found your message. I'm really sorry about this and I feel awful about it.
I hope that you are making a good recovery and wish you well and, again, my apologies -I hate letting people down

I was just wondering if you had a date for your grandfather, i might be able to do a look up for you at our library, though i am unsure if they have Isle of man records, if i have a date then i can let you know if i can find anything.

Hope thatyou are feeling better, take it easy i know how you feel as i live with in a heart family.
