GRO online index error reporting

Discussion in 'GRO' started by jpkc, Oct 8, 2018.

    I have reported 14 errors to the GRO and 7 of them have resulted in amendments.

    The other 7 have resulted in "no amendment required", 2 because "index data is correct" and 2 because "index data not available".
    The earlier ones had no reason given.

    I still cannot find the records concerned but they are shown on the images on FreeBMD.

    Presumably there is a mismatch between the original schedules sent to the GRO and the old quarterly indexes, but does anyone know what these cryptic remarks mean and/or is there anything else I can do, usually to find the mother's maiden name?

    I am posting in this forum because Peter has links to the GRO.

    I can certainly take it up at the next meeting - whenever that is. But this discussion is in the wrong forum - let me know where it should be and I'll move it across.

    I suppose it should be in "Problems with other genealogy sites" , or possibly "Where shoul I post this message?".

    Sorry for the misdirection.

    The answer may be connected with "Search techniques" but it is difficult to find peculiar spellings when one cannot search without a surname.
