*Layby dockets
Joint flyby account

This is correct just gathering as much as we can as we have decided to ideally go down this road, the reason being if left to last minute it can be fairly stressful ,any suggestions?

Great that you're gathering all the information so much in advance. In my opinion your evidence is really good, what you can add is:
- wills (you can buy a pack at the post office, or just write your own)
- concert tickets, movie tickets, any joint club membership, proof of any joint activities, gym for example, or dancing lessons...
- are your phones prepaid or post-paid; could you get phone bills delivered to your (same) address?
- postcards from yours and your partner's family, addressed to both of you; joint invitations, ...
- if you go anywhere for holidays, get the receipt (a hotel, caravan park, ...)

If I think of anything else, I'll let you know...

How did you prove that you lived together at your parents house for 10 months?

If you havent already done so, you can get your partners parents to do a stat dec outlining that you lived together for the 10 months.
