George Smith/Eliza Rowles marriage

Hi to all
I am looking for the marriage of George Smith B 1858 and Eliza Rowles B 1858. Eliza Died sometime between 1890 and 1897, when George remarried Elizabeth Mooney nee Reed.
Has anyone got any information and the wedding and death certificates and if so would it be possible to give me the info.

this could be a possibility

England & Wales, FreeBMD Death Index, 1837-1915

Eliza Smith

Date of Registration:Jan-Feb-Mar 1894

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1858
Age at Death: 36

Registration district: Newport
Inferred County:Monmouthshire

Volume: 11a
Page: 146
hi thanks for the reply
a little more for you, their 1st child was born 1876, so i would imagine they were married around 1874, give or take a year. I think Eliza died around 1896 in London.
I think i found the marriage registered in Bristol in 1874 Q4 vol 6a pg 682, but cant find a corresponding one to match with George.

Any help most appreciated.
Do I take it you are discounting the records I posted?

It is quite possible that the first child was born before any marriage. I don't know when it was born in 1876, but the marriage was in the first quarter of 1877 in Pontepool which is not far from Newport where I have Eliza's death, and the marriage to Elizabeth

Well worth consideration I would have thought

Marriages Dec Qtr 1874 - Stroud 6a 682
Excell Emma Celia
Loveday Joseph
Rowles Eliza

There does not seem to be anyone missing. I've checked for an odd number of persons on page 682 and in volume 6a for possible page errors for George & Eliza.

I would say this is the matching couple in 1881
