    It won't be easy - you'll just have to trawl through the registers quarter by quarter! Could take a while!

          Sheila............have you looked through the complete list on Ancestry, or just the partial list?

          If he's not on the complete list, I don't think you'll find it. I think you need that to get a cert.

          Do you know if he left the services at all? Maybe a military researcher could help.
          I had to get one. He was great and a lot cheaper than wrong certs.

            if you looked on Ancestry, opening each page, each year, quarter by quarter, its almost pointless somone else doing it as well - no more likely to find it , than you were.

            did you find any at all for elimination purposes?
            Were they Arthur A or just Arthur?

              Sheila, did you ever get the children's birth certificates to find out whether Arthur was named as their father or not?

                  Hi Kite runner No I had to get May's and Arthur Honey's marriage certificate first to prove that he was the right man for my May and he was. It took over 14 day for the post to get from the GRO to " down under ". I know that her twin died almost at birth. I then tryed to find May WG Honey's marrage to see if that helped , but no luck

                      Yes, but have you looked into any deaths for Arthur Honey without a middle name?

                        Sheila, what I meant was, if you get the children's birth certs (or one of them) plus Arthur jr's death cert then it should tell you whether Arthur senior was still alive when the twins were born and also whether he was still alive when Arthur jr died. Also, don't forget that the index entry would be the same even if Arthur wasn't the twins' father (for instance, if he died before they were conceived) although of course since one of the twins appears to have been named after him it is most likely he was their father. But in this kind of case every cert is a potential clue! You never know what it will tell you until you get it.

                            it may very well be that whoever registered his death , didnt do so with his middle name - they may not have known it.

                            its about the only time you cannot actually give the info yourself, if you so desire - you are totally dependent on others

                              The only real suggestion I have would be to go through the complete index again noting down all the Arthur Honey's of the correct age and then narrow it down by district.

                              Like my John Browns you may end up getting a few wrong certs, but its all part of the process. (sadly an expensive part)

                              It might also be worth calling the Reg offices for any possibles you find and asking them to look at the cert (tell them his occupation at the time of marriage and also his widows name, they can sometimes be really helpful and say sorry the info doesn't match and it doesn't always cost you anything)
