Received Certificates from England!

I have done a quick transcribing of the certificates I just received today from England. Some of the writting is more difficult to read so will wait to try and decipher it when it is daylight and I don't have a slight headache.

Of the 10 certificates I received, two of them were for the wrong people. So, back to trying to find a death record for Emma (Halsey) Simmons and a birth record for George Simmons. Otherwise I have verification on several assumptions, a couple of new bits of info, and now more questions to answer. For example George Newman and Mary Bridge's marriage certificate say he was a widower. So, who was his first wife? when did she die? did they have any children together?

But onto what I have transcribed-

Death certificates

year 1922 quarter J vol 03a pg 745 district Bishop Stortford - Emma Simmons widow of James Simmons a farm laborer daughter Martha Childs (wrong Emma Simmons based on the fact that my Emma's husband was named George and they did not have a daughter named Martha and none of their daughters married a Mr Childs)
