Hi Johnny,

No luck with finding their marrige. I only looked on the partial BMD, have you tried looking on the complete index?

Hi Johnny,

You can view the full BMD on Ancestry and Findmypast, which are pay per view sites. The partial BMD on Ancestry is free to view and there is also free BMD. You could also try your local library/studies centre.

Had another look but still couldnt find a marriage. Could they have married before the 1900's or perhaps a little bit later. Margaret may have been married before so her surname would be different or they didnt marry at all.
