Garvey & Hammond 1913-23 Sunderland, Richmond Yorkshire, Barrow in Furness districts

Garvey & Hammond 1913-23 Sunderland, Richmond Yorkshire, Barrow in Furness districts

Looking for the marriage of my great-grandparents.

LORETTA THERESA GARVEY was born 1887 in Sunderland. Her parents EDWARD GARVEY & JANE ANN ELEANOR BINKS were of Irish descent and had moved to the Sunderland area by the time of the 1841 census. They were catholic and most of their BMD events were recorded at St Mary's on Bridge Street. They were however in Bainbridge in the Yorkshire Dales at the time of the 1901 census.

GEORGE WILLIAM HAMMOND was born in 1866 in Grinton in the Yorkshire Dales and lived in Aysgarth, Thornton Rust, Constable Burton and finally Hunton. His parents were MARK HAMMOND & JANE RICHARDSON. His first wife FRANCES HOPPER died in 1913.

Their first child was born in 1923. LORETTA was still using her maiden name when she witnessed her brother's marriage in Sunderland in 1918. Also, apparently Loretta was quite fond of the Barrow in Furness area and her brother married someone from that area.

I have searched on Ancestry, FindMyPast and FamilySearch - even manually going through 10 years of indexes - to no avail. Even searching just their first names produces nothing.
