Thread: Can you find a death for Rachel?

    Can you find a death for Rachel?

    Hi all!
    I am after a death (or re-marriage I guess) for Rachel Sturgess (Sturgis) nee Gold b. 1783, Avington, Berkshire. She married William Sturgess (Sturgis) in 1802, Kintbury, Berkshire. I have them on the 1851 census in a little hamlet, covered by Kintbury. I believe I have William's death in 1856 registered in Hungerford, Berkshire but cannot find Rach(a)el after the 1851 census. Can anyone help?
    Thanks

    Thanks - I always forget to check the GRO if I can't see it on Ancestry!

    Tessie, FreeBMD is much easier to search than Ancestry. It is always my first port of call and then to the GRO index to check out likely ones. Best of all .... its free!

    I totally agree with you Anne.

    Firstly FreeMD then GRO for ages then ancestry or FMP for burials or deaths.

    Also Deceased on line is good for burials. Even gives you the date of burial without a sub. Not all areas covered though.
