HADFIELD – BDMs – England and Wales:

 

1.            Civil registration of Births, Deaths and Marriages (BDMs) in England and Wales commenced in the September quarter of 1837.  Although compulsory by law to register, it was not until 1875 that it was strictly enforced.

2.           The General Register Office (GRO) BDMs are recorded and collated by year and quarter, e.g. 1875 September quarter will contain all those registrations for July, August and September 1875.

3.           The HADFIELD BDMs listed here have been copied from the GRO BDM microfiche indices.  The fields that do not contain information are as a consequence of those GRO microfiche records sighted being illegible.

 


Search Tips for GRO indices:

 

1.               Once the correct BIRTH entry has been located, check the entire quarter for an identical reference as this may indicate a multiple birth.  Multiple births are indicated with an asterisk or other symbol.

2.               Once the correct DEATH entry has been located, check the entire quarter for an identical reference as this may indicate one of the following:

 

a.           simultaneous sibling deaths during a multiple birth (there are many);

b.           simultaneous deaths of both mother and child(ren) during childbirth;

c.     simultaneous sibling deaths due to natural causes, accident, war, criminal act or execution; and

d.           simultaneous deaths of members of the same family at the same time and place.

 

3.               Both spouses will have identical MARRIAGE references listed under their respective surnames.  Identical references will also occur in the rare instance where two or more HADFIELD marriages are recorded in the same year, quarter, volume and page (four entries to a page).  Siblings being married at the same time and place may also have identical references.  Note that there are also instances where a HADFIELD married a HADFIELD.

4.               Registration of a BDM may not necessarily have taken place in the same quarter or year as the event.  The Registrar recording multiple births, deaths or marriages may or may not have recorded each person with identical references.

5.               With many HADFIELD families having personal evidence of BDMs being registered displaying the surname HATFIELD, it is worth examining the GRO BDMs for that surname as well.  A hundred or so years ago, many family members were illiterate and as Registrars tended to write what they heard, the person registering the BDM was therefore not able to check the accuracy of what had been recorded.
