Still looking. I assume you havnt the marriage certificate which would be a benefit as it would give the fathers name and occupation and the witnesses may be relatives

I don't have marriage cert here tonite, but will have to ask if M.I.L has it tomoro- sorry!!!! I can come back to you on that one if it is easier?????

hi all

only additional info i have for Edmond is the following:

Death Cert - 2a/572 (Canterbury), March 18th 1901


Marr Cert - 2a/1422 (Canterbury) 1885

don't know if that will help at all or if Mother in law just needs to order both of these????

thanks sue xx
Hi Suzanne,

The marriage cert should give his fathers name and occupation hopefully. But on the odd occasion it doesn't.

The death cert will give some info, depending on who the informant was.

The marriage cert would give more info, but I would order both, at £7 each and save the time and hassle.

Thank you for advice, have tried to explain this to the mother in law, that she needed to do this!!!!! but you know wot they are like!!!!! don't listen!!!!!!!! well mine doesn't anyway - thinks she knows it all - NOT!!!!!

Will make sure they get ordered, and thanks again
