    Can you please help or advise, I have just found that ancestors of mine died in unusual circumstances, Joan wife of John Day of Guildford Surrey was buried on 27th October 1715, two of her children John and Jane Day were buried a week before on 19th October 1715.
    I can only assume that all three died at the same time.
    I wonder if you have any records of the period or can point me in the right direction.
    Thanks for reading this email and any help that you can give me, Regards Terry day

    Question please: In the mid-late 1920’s the Automobile (AA) Association had offices in the Central Buildings block in North Street… later they relocated the outskirts into their own large & fine Fanum House building (on the A3~A25 roundabout??)… Does anybody have any photos or further info’ for both locations please? Or could point me in an appropriate direction please?
