Great Greensloy?

The death certificate for an ancestor born about 1869 lists "Great Greensloy, England" as the place of birth. I can't find anything on line about this place, is is a misspelling or maybe a place that doesn't exist any longer?

Re: Great Greensloy?

It doesn't give the shire or anything else? What about the census where does that say they born?

Re: Great Greensloy?

No parish. This is actually the spouse of a person I've been searching for for literally years. I was a little excited yesterday and forgot the pertinent information.

William H. Bird came to America from England, died in Michigan in 1921. There are a great many Birds born around 1869! The handwriting on the certificate is a little hard to read, the father's name is given as "Mr. Bird" and the mother left blank. It could be Great Grimsby, the first part of the word certainly looks more like "grims" than "green". I'll try that one.
