Entries in BMD registers for ancestors a long way from their usual abode.

Do not ignore such entries. Especially if one of the parents, spouses or deceased was a sailor, soldier or even visiting relatives or moved somewhere temporarily.

My 2xgreat grandmother lived in Essex all her life and was married twice. I found that her first marriage took place in London.

Another Essex residing ancestor married in London in 1866. My 5xgreat grandmother died in Yorkshire in 1863 whereas she lived most of her life in Durham and the same for her grandson who emigrated in later life.
