It would help greatly if you gave people the persons name and age date of birth reference you found etc Otherwise you may have just picked up the wrong person I looked for a Mary Barnes once I found 155 all in the same year!!!

The death has to be registered at the Registry Office covering the area where the death was certified. In some very rare instances the event may be DECLARED at a different RO; but I am sure that is not what has occured here.

Hi,
Your questions could be answered by others looking at your problem why NOT give the name??

Probates in and around the period of WW1 were often in Wales. This may have had something to do with the high workload of 1M extra deaths.

Not WW1 - WW2. The Principal Probate Registry, which had been housed at Somerset House, was moved to Llandudno in 1940 to make room for other Government departments. It returned in 1946. So probates for Londoners were registered in Llandudno during that time.
