You could pick up the age at death for those registrations from the GRO site.

I hadn't realised she had lived long enough to be on a census. Can you tell me anything about her census entries?

Hi. I'm sorry I haven't done that i've only using family search at present and am experiencing a lot of problems with loading pages . She could have died earlier , but those I have mentioned only come up . I'll try and check again . I usually access ancestry at my local library and obviously can't do that at present as it's much better . it has lots more info

Why don't you use Lancs OPC? Family search is very poor for burial records. You are just accessing post 1837 death registrations.

There's this one which is a fairly good fit, given the person giving the info may not have known her exact age (Lancs OPC):

Burial: 28 Nov 1848 All Saints, Wigan, Lancashire, England
Ann Calland -
Age: 77 years
Abode: Aspull
Cause of Death: Decay
Buried by: Howard St. George Offg. Minr. Curate of Haigh
Register: Burials 1848 - 1853, Page 37, Entry 294
Source: LDS Film 1885702

Unfortunately I can't find her on the 1841 census to see if who she is living with (if anyone) throws up any clues.

Her death cert may well give the name of her husband (regardless of whether he was still alive or not) if she was a married woman.

CALLAND, ANN 77
GRO Reference: 1848 D Quarter in WIGAN UNION Volume 21 Page 482

There's also this possibe one for her husband (Lancs OPC):

Burial: 17 Aug 1825 All Saints, Wigan, Lancashire, England
William Callen -
Age: 57
Abode: Scholes
Cause of Death: Sudden
Buried by: G. Goodwill
Register: Burials 1824 - 1830, Page 51, Entry 405
Source: LDS Film 1885701

Again, perhaps very slightly too young, but we don't know the accuracy of the record.

As I said in post #45:

Her death cert may well give the name of her husband (regardless of whether he was still alive or not) if she was a married woman.

So, if the death cert says widow of William then it still could be her, but if it says wife/widow of someone else then it's not her. Same if it says she is a spinster. The person who registered the death could be a clue, esp if it's a married daughter. Unfortunately early death registrations usually don't have details of the relationship of the informant.


I'm not sure you should be attempting to order certs at the moment though. Have a look and see what Lancs BMD say on their website. The GRO have asked people to delay making orders until a later date wherever possible.
