I am looking for the marraige of Alfred William Wright and Lillian Jane Shepherd. It is thought they met in London abt 1917/8 and married before 1927 when Lillian died. They lived in Leeds West Yorkshire from 1917/8 to 1927 and Alfred died in Leeds in 1940

hi Benny, thanks for diggging. Lillian died aged 37 and Alfred was 56.So far we think Lillian was born in Stepney and all pointers seem to confirm that.However finding and matching her to Alfred Wright is another story,hence the marraige jobby.Cheers Mike

Hi Mike

The marriage does seem to be elusive. It is possible that they may have married abroad. Could Alfred have been in the forces at all?

Ben, thanks again for trying to find this marraige.As far as we know to date he was not in the forces. We believe he was born in Clerkenwell, London and moved to Grantham as a young child and married a 'Clara' who we believe died in 1916. As he and Lillian settled in Leeds some time after that date we thought the marraige would be say post 1917 to 1926? Is it possible the data was lost during the 2nd world war? We have really struggled with this one and it maybe that they never married? perhaps we may never know?MIike
