Received the death certs of my OHs gggrandparents today, opened Philip Calladines first and thought i had my first wrong cert, but after opening Sarahs, the occupation looks similar. I know Sarahs is right because of who was present at death.

I have marriage certs for 2 of the daughters, on one Philip is a Collier and the other a Miner,





Could someone help with he surname of Elizabeth from Philips cert too please, they had a daughter Elizabeth and it might help me find her marriage,


Thanks for any help

The occupation is "Drover" and rthe surname is Jolley. A drover was a person who drove cattle, which sounds quite different from a collier! I suppose he must have changed jobs.

Thank you for looking Kiterunner, i should have added Philip died in 1841 and Sarah 1877 and the children were married after he died, so i may have a wrong cert after all.

Bear with me people, there is a Jolley family (transcribed as Tolley) living next door to the Calladines in Bag Lane in 1841. Elizabeth is the wife, unfortunatley there are no house numbers.

If this is the informant Elizabeth on the cert, she is not his daughter, but could mean i have the right cert for Philip. :confused:
