    Forest Gate Essex?

    Any Essex experts around please? If someone said they were born in Forest Gate Essex, which reg district would that be please? I have trawled through all the Essex regs I could find but no sign of Forest Gate. I have looked in the Wiki but I can't find it there either.

    Hi Chrissie, Forest Gate is in E7.

    Newham possibly? Does it not tell you in Freebmd?

      Thanks Viv - I will check to see whether I have tried Newham.
      On free bmd I only know how to check by getting Essex refs up and going in to look for Forest Gate. Is there a way to check just for Forest Gate?

        Try West Ham, I'm sure I have a few rellies who on census say Forest Gate but their birth was reg in West Ham.

        Just off to double check that

          Hi again Chrissie, scrub Newham unless you are looking fairly recent.

          I agree with Vikki , West Ham looks your best bet.

              No, Forest Gate doesn't come up in West Ham reg district.

                Chrissie - What year? only reason I ask is the 1901 census lists Forst Gate in West Ham.

                    There is this web site which may help (also for future reference)

                    West Ham Registration District

                    Shows Forest Gate is a sub-district of West Ham

                      I've gone cross eyed checking out all the possible districts around Forest Gate & I still come back to West Ham. Sorry Chrissie my tiny brain has come to a stop.

                            If you are using FreeBMD find West Ham in the box that says Districts. Then search with that selected.

                                My gr-grandfather was born in Forest Gate in 1891. His birth certificate says West Ham district, Sub-district Forest Gate.

                                    Thanks Helen and Nell. I shall have to concentrate on the three or four possibles then I was hoping it was in some obscure reg district with only one choice - some hope :D
