Herrod/Smith marriage confusion

Location
Chester
From
England
Hi, hopefully someone can help me.

I am trying to trace my great grandparents, and have come to a dead end. :mad:

My Grandfather was born in 1924 and his birth certificate says his mother was Elizabeth Ann Smith (formerly Herrod) and his father was Ernest Smith (registration district Hemsworth, Yorkshire).

I am struggling to find a reference of their marriage and births.

All I know about them is my G Grandfather was a miner, a "Colliery Underground Overman" at Grimethorpe Colliery, near Barnsley and possibly my G Grandmother was a teacher. They lived in Grimethorpe when my grandfather was born.

I have searched the BMD indexes and can't find anything relating to their marriage or Elizabeth's birth (I haven't started to look at Ernest yet, as Smith's are everywhere!).

I'm hoping somebody can help me with finding out about Elizabeth.

Many thanks,

Steph

Hi Gortonboy,

Thanks for your reply! I had found that marriage in my search, but had discounted it (possibly naively) as it would have made Elizabeth Herrod 37 when she had my Grandfather. I'll order the certificates to see what other information I can find.

Cheers,

Steph
