View Full Version : A couple of questions Please

I have an extracted record from the IGI for the birth of Thomas Sullivan 10 Aug 1837 and Christened 10 Sep Saint John The Baptist, Shoreditch, London.

I can’t find a GRO reference # for his birth certificate on Ancestry or FMP is there anywhere else I can look?

I’m also looking for the death on Frances Sullivan (Logsdell)

Robert Sullivan married Frances Logsdell, Hackney, Middlesex, 1827 and was married again to Elizabeth Cook, Whitechapel, St. Mary, 1834.

Robert and Frances had a daughter in 1833 so Frances died between 1833 and 1834.

Can someone tell me where to look for Frances’s death certificate?

Civil registration started in july 1837 and the take up was very poor in the first year so it is very likely Thomas Sullivan's birth was not registered.

For Frances, the best you can hope for is a burial. However, the IGI does not normally transcribe burials so you probably won't find this online.

Thanks OC, it looks like I need to put this one on the back burner for a while.
